Cycling the Grand Union Canal

In May 2007, Tim, Andy, Craig, Alison, Sam, Neil, Ursula and Chris cycled along the Grand Union Canal for 3 days from Birmingham to London (well nearly – heavy rain on the last day meant we caught the train a little earlier than planned!). Canal tow path riding is a really excellent way to go on a cycle tour if you don’t like cars or hills! Try not to fall in the canal though (Sam!). We aimed to do about 50 miles a day, though next time we’d aim for less as although we were generally fit enough to do this, tow path riding can be slow going due to obstacles, and also – we’d like more nice relaxing pub stops!
