Canal De Garonne - Review
The idea of building this canal was toyed with by various powers for more than a thousand years before it was actually built. Its logistical importance was obviously great: a short cut between the Mediterranean and the Atlantic that cut out the long passage around Spain. The problem had always been a marked lack of water that could sustain navigation. It was only in 1838 that the project properly took off and some crazy feats of engineering made the canal possible. In 1856, the canal became properly functional. Today, the combined length of Canal de Garrone and Canal du Midi makes for a popular cycling tour that takes anywhere between 7–10 days to complete. You can rent bikes in Toulouse for the specific purpose of cycling the track.

Canal De Garonne, Toulouse Reviews
Espai molt fàcil de recórrer amb bicicleta des de Toulouse fins a Bordeaux. Tot pla, asfaltat en una carretera totalment ben equipada i amb l'accés als cotxes totalment prohibit. Ideal per fer a trams. Per a totes les edats i ideal per fer en família
J'y suis passé lors de mon périple à bicyclette qui allait de Bordeaux à Sète. Le long des canaux, il est super agréable de rouler, flâner, s'émerveiller, se reposer. En septembre, il n'y a pas trop de monde sauf sur le Canal du Midi où les bateaux font souvent la file pour passer les écluses.
