Pedal at your own pace alongside the canal

One of the easiest ways to enjoy canal life is on two wheels. Ride along the old towpaths – a total of 87 km with no cars in sight. Watch the locks in action, pat the canal sheep or enjoy a picnic on the canal bank while the boats glide lazily by. We have many great cycling packages and accommodation alternatives.
