At the Stade de France, the Bataclan, in the cafes and restaurants of Paris... on Friday 13th November, terrorists killed and wounded many innocent people. And in doing so, they also aimed also to kill these places that we love, places which represent culture and a spirit of sharing.
We at WorldEventListings share the grief of the friends and families of the victims of the terrorist attacks of 13th November 2015. And we offer our unconditional support to all the cultural venues affected.
Our raison d'être has always been to share cultural information with as many people as possible. We will continue. We will win. Their failure is only a matter of time.

Description

A walk beside the ocean.

Routed along an old railway line, the Bordeaux - Lacanau Ocean "Voie Verte" ("Greenway") offers a 60 mile long hike through the stunning Gironde countryside, leading you to the ocean and a long stretch of sandy beach. With its practical surface, this route is a delight for walkers, cyclists and rollerbladers, anything goes on the Voie Verte.

Enjoy a long hike or bike ride with your family or friends, leaving from Bordeaux city centre, at Place Ravezies or from the campsite at Bordeaux Lac. After tasting the delights of the city and its suburbs, including the towns of Bruges and Hailsham, you will lose yourself in nature, plunging into the quiet of the pine forest. Enjoy the fresh air before you come out at the south of Medoc with its famous vineyards. Then, once you reach Lacanau Ocean, you can enjoy the beach and the Atlantic coast.

The most energetic hikers can continue towards Aquitaine via the Coastal Voie Verte in Gironde, following the coast between the Pointe de Grave, and Arcachon. The Bordeaux - Lacanau route also allows you to complete a Tour de Gironde, using various similar routes, the five most beautiful greenways of the Aquitaine region. This journey of 270 km would take 4-5 days hiking, taking in cities and beaches, forests and vineyards. 

Some trains to Bordeaux participate in the Train + Vélo scheme allowing you to take your bike on the train.
