Canal a deux mers / EuroVelo 1 / Camino de Santiago (Sept/Oct 2017)

Hello! Later this month I'll be cycling this route Across France and Spain. It's most of the Canal a Deux Mers, a short part of the EuroVelo1 and then The Camino de Santiago.

If anyone is cycling a part of this route later in September / October, let me know =)

Buen Camino!

HI Seba,

HI Seba,

i just finished my journey from Switzerland to Hendaye on the Spanish border having followed some the track you want to do. If you are around Arles and Aigues Mortes you should visit the Camargue with its bull and flamencos. The mediterranean cost is very touristic so I don't recomend you camping sides. And wild camping might be a bit difficult as well (or you sleep directly at the beach). The first part of the Canal du Midi is better for mountain biles than for bikes with a lot of baggage. Sometimes it's convenient to take a closeby road. After having cycled the Canal du Midi for me the Canal de la Garonne (the second part of the Canal dee deux Mers) was very boring. So I already left it at Valence d'Agen going south-west to Condom, Eauze, Dax (which is a pilgrim's way and very beautiful with some voies verts as well). The basque-french coast is very hilly, so be prepared! :D

Have a nice journey!!!

Thanks for the tips! :-D I

Thanks for the tips! :-D I was really hoping to do the part of EuroVelo1 that goes tru the south of France, from Bordeaux to Bayonne. It is only a couple of days before I leave it to go to Saint Jean Pied de Port, to start the Camino, but I feel like it's a gorgeous route to travel and wild-camp.

I'm taking a fuji touring bike, it's not a MTB, but it's a little tougher than a road bike (with 38mm tires and just two back panniers). Hopefully I won't have any problems on the Camino or the Canal du Midi.

Best regards!
