Hey, Alliance Française is the most famous, but I don't think it's cheap.

Hello,

I went to CEL in the place de la bourse in bordeaux. I don't remember the prices but I was happy and the place is really nice !

You can also try at le franc parler which is a small and serious agency. w www.french-language-courses.fr. They are also trying to find you a (paying) host in bordeaux. I'm hosting for them from time to time.
Enjoy your class.

I spontaneously booked a flight to Bordeaux with no plans, directions or friends. Would love to meet some people, most importantly hear the french accent, can listen for hours. A couch would be a bonus, but would much appreciate some local tips or directions, explore France.

Hey, I'll be in Bordeaux for the weekend, trying to practice my french with Brasilian accent! If u feel like doing something, let me know, I'll be on my own till monday.

Hello Ciaran,
Can't do anything for hosting at the moment :( but if you're looking to meet people with french accents (like me, kind of sexy one) you can come tomorrow at this event[1] and this one[2] the day after :) ! Would be cool to meet an another Irish! See you and have fun in Bordeaux!

Dear CSers in Bordeaux!

Im a traveler from Germany & I live in Barcelona.

Soon, I will be visiting Bordeaux.

After my football weekend, I want to go by bike along the Canal a la Garonne. Can anyone recommend me a good reliable bycicle rental in town that also offers panners/saddle bags with the rental? (Im not searching for the typical & popular citybikes that rent out free for 1 hour or so.)

And: Are there lockers in the city center (e.g. at the bus/train stations)? I would like to travel light at the bike and leave my big backpack for some days.

Thanks for your help!

Saludos, Steffen

About the lockers, there are some automatic ones at the train station: http://www.gares-sncf.com/fr/gare/frboj/bordeaux-saint-jean/services/consignes-automatiques

Maybe you should contact this bike shop near the train station: http://www.hollandbikes.com/magasin-velo-et-location-a-bordeaux-holland-bikes-bordeaux.htm
or try this shop in merignac( ecocycle : http://www.velo-occasion.com/contact.html) that sells (and maybe rents) very unexpensive bikes ( and will probably buy it back when you'll end your trip) but i'm pretty sure that the latter doesn't rent any saddle bags.
