Mon point de départ est le pont-canal d’Agen, seul endroit entre Toulouse et Bordeaux où le canal “latéral à la Garonne” dit “Canal de Garonne” enjambe le fleuve. C’est aussi un point de vue idéal pour observer la Garonne dont la couleur varie selon la météo. Généralement bleue/verte, elle devient marron suite à des pluies d’orage en amont, voire ocre/rouge si ces pluies viennent du Tarn. Quand son débit est élevé, il est parfois difficile d’apercevoir le barrage de Beauregard construit en amont pour alimenter le canal (il a perdu cet usage en 1970).

Au pied du pont-canal, de bon matin, Pierre du Café-Vélo se prépare à recevoir les cyclistes et randonneurs, pour un verre, un repas, une nuit, une location de vélo ou une réparation. C’est d’ailleurs ici que j’ai récemment orienté Serge, un ami belge qui relie Carcassonne à Roscoff, via le canal des 2 mers,  avec son vélo électrique. Au delà de quelques réglages rendus nécessaires, il a bénéficié de conseils utiles qui au final l’ont conduit à s’alléger de plusieurs kilos.

C’est l’une des plus grandes difficultés que l’on rencontre lorsque l’on pratique le cyclotourisme ! Je reste toujours impressionnée quand je vois un cycliste partir plusieurs mois, avec juste le nécessaire…Un jour, peut-être j’y arriverai !

Au bout d’une ligne droite, j’aperçois l’auberge de la Poule à Vélo, installée dans la maison éclusière 33 /Saint Christophe à Saint Jean de Thurac. Je retrouve Christelle aux fourneaux. J’ai juste le temps de tester son nouveau parking à vélos avant de poursuivre mon chemin.

Au fur et à mesure que je m’éloigne d’Agen, les joggers et marcheurs laissent la place aux cyclotouristes.

Le soleil est de plus en plus fort et me fait accélérer pour trouver l’ombre !

Un peu avant Lamagistère, le château Labastide Orliac domine la vallée. Fléché un peu plus loin, si vous avez le courage de monter jusqu’à lui, ses propriétaires vous conteront l’histoire de ce château qui fournissait en vin Louis XVI.

Au niveau de l’écluse n°30 de Valence d’Agen, j’aperçois Muriel, artiste plasticienne, rencontrée l’an dernier. Installée dans l’ancienne maison de garde dénommée “le jardin du contrôleur”, elle propose une buvette associative et alternative, un espace pique-nique et une chambre d’hôtes.

Deux écluses plus loin, je rencontre Kahl qui vient de s’installer dans la maison éclusière n°28/ Braguel à Pommevic. Dans cet environnement calme et ombragé, cette petite pause est bien agréable. C’est aussi l’occasion d’échanger avec des pèlerins de Saint Jacques de Compostelle, dont le chemin emprunte le canal entre Moissac et Valence d’Agen.

Avant d’arriver à Moissac, j’emprunte un escalier avec rampe à vélo qui permet de se rendre à la base de Saint Nicolas de la Grave. Du pont qui enjambe la Garonne, je pourrais rester des heures à observer les voiliers et la confluence entre le Tarn et la Garonne.

Je traverse ensuite Moissac pour aller jusqu’au pont-canal du Cacor qui enjambe le Tarn. Grâce à Aude, responsable de la valorisation du patrimoine de Moissac, qui a adhéré dès le départ à notre approche Canalfriends, j’ai découvert beaucoup de choses sur cette ville ; ce pont avait été utilisé lors de la terrible inondation de 1930 pour faire passer le train.

Je repars vers la ville en passant le long du Tarn pour rencontrer Jérôme/ Rand’eau Loisirs, loueur de vélos, canoës et bateaux sur le Tarn. Coup de chance, je retrouve Aideen/Ultreïa qui propose des hébergements en dortoir et chambres d’hôtes. Je rejoins ensuite au port, Marie Claude qui nous suit sur tous les événements dans la région et mes amis du Flustival : Agathe & Damien d’Arts à Bord, Guenael & Eloïse du Bazar Ephémère ainsi qu’Erwan avec Menta son bateau livres.

“What do we need in order to succeed or achieve our goals? The will, adaptability, curiosity, determination and a little courage.We can all relate to this challenge within our own lives and I sincerely hope it will help you in times of need. “

That is Ingrid Ulricht’s message following her successful Med’Océan Stand UP Paddle undertaking from the Mediterranean (Port La Nouvelle)  to the Atlantic (Royan): 600km in 10 days, 10 to 12 hours completely unaided!

[/av_textblock]

[av_image src=’https://www.canalfriends.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/07/canalfriends.com-Ingrid-Ulrich-4-496×372.jpg’ attachment=’8110′ attachment_size=’medium’ align=’center’ styling=” hover=” link=” target=” caption=” font_size=” appearance=” overlay_opacity=’0.4′ overlay_color=’#000000′ overlay_text_color=’#ffffff’ animation=’no-animation’ admin_preview_bg=”][/av_image]

2 months earlier, the Swiss, Micheline, paddled 450 Km from Bordeaux to Port la Nouvelle in 18 days, proving that anything is possible at 57; Pierre Paul Riquet’s age when he started the construction of the Canal du Midi. The canal celebrates its 350th anniversary in 2016. What an achievement!

Unaided and 8 days less, 39 year old Ingrid managed to paddle 150 km more than Micheline from Port La Nouvelle.  Her biggest challenge being the windy conditions on the Dordogne (130 km) and Fréjus / Corse (115km for it); this latter she paddled as part of a team.

Due to the wind, it took longer than expected to cover the early stages. From Toulouse, Ingrid decided to paddle on the Garonne, taking advantage of the currents and avoiding the canal locks that have to be crossed foot.  In this way, she recovered the day lost on the Canal du Midi and made it to Royan in 9.5 days!

Ingrid wanted to prove to herself and others that we can regain confidence by surpassing ourselves.

Despite blisters, Ingrid was all smiles when she arrived in Agen on the 6th day. She had been paddling 13 hour days, encountered obstacles including the Beauregard dam; it was clear that she had already achieved her goal and that nothing could prevent her from reaching Royan.

In the words of Ingrid, “I will never forget that the Med’océan challenge was and above all a collective adventure. Thanks to all the people who helped me prior to and during my journey; I learnt something from all the people I met. A thought as well for my friends, family and acquaintances for their support, encouragement and affection.

All these people, without whom the adventure wouldn’t have been possible are all precious to me. These human treasures are perhaps the most ‘’beautiful village’’ I crossed…

I dedicate this journey to all those who would have liked to, who were capable of , but who have been held back by life.”

With Ingrid’s adventure, we wanted to highlight those who dare to challenge themselves as well as the great solidarity that exists among users of waterways (boat, canoe, bicycle, professional, resident, tourist ..). Ingrid’s progress was relayed via social media, inviting those who came across her to encourage her. Also by asking waterways professionals, residents and tourists to provide advice, ideas on safe places to spend the night or merely by lending her their telephones for a call… Over the 10 days, there was ample proof that  solidarity and a sense of community really exists on and around our waterways!

Judging by the numerous press articles and support from the public on social media during the journey, Ingrid has managed to become both a symbol of how to surpass oneself and the spirit of female liberty.

ULTREIA Moissac quality accommodation

At Ultreia Moissac, we offer you a warm Irish family welcome, with comfortable quality accommodation. We are directly on the ancient pilgrimage route of Saint James/Santiago (the GR65), beside the train station, in the centre of the historical town of Moissac, and only 30m from the canal lateral a la Garonne.

We have a choice of private ensuite Chambre d’Hotes rooms in our charmingly restored 19th century home; or beds in small shared dormitories. In the evening we offer a meal (on reservation), containing local fresh produce and vegetables from our garden where possible.

Come and follow in the footsteps of centuries of pilgrims. Moissac is surrounded by history – the Abbey Saint Pierre and the famed Cloister are within 300 metres.

The river Tarn (with a selection of nautical activities) and the Canal des Deux Mers (with its cycle path joining the Atlantic ocean to the Mediterranean sea) are both within meters.

Open all year – by reservation in winter.

Already an exceptional site on the Canal du Midi, the 9 locks of Fonseranes, located at the foot of Beziers, is undergoing major renovation in order to offer the best possible conditions to all visitors to this UNESCO listed World Heritage site. For members of Canalfriends living far from Fonseranes, here are images showing the progress of the works.
