Have you decided to venture out on the canal from Bordeaux to Toulouse? We offer you a selection of equipment to take with you for a stay of several days. It is up to you to adapt it according to your needs, your desires and the different places where you have decided to spend the night. We recommend that you cover the 268 kilometres of the canal in 5 days. (You can find our itinerary here) This is an easily accessible and pleasant route thanks to the Roger Lapébie trail, which you will use for many kilometres.
You should plan your clothing according to the number of days and the weather conditions. In any case, you should wear :
It should be adapted according to the length of the journey, the season and the place where you spend the night. If you are staying in a B&B, towels will be provided, but you will need to bring your own if you are staying at a campsite. However, you can take your everyday hygiene products with you and transfer the products you need into containers adapted to the number of days of travel to save storage space. As far as the emergency kit is concerned, you can at least take with you bandages, paracetamol and sun cream for example.
You will find inns, restaurants and supermarkets nearby for food and drink. If you decide to take all your meals with you, remember to take containers and cutlery, as well as a stove and everything else you need...
However, make sure that you have a secure bike room for each night you sleep, where you can leave your bikes.
