weeman - was out riding the canals the other weekend myself. Lovely place to ride (esp. for the unfit like myself!) as long as you watch out for other waterway users.
I rode about half a mile to pick up the canal in Stourport then tow path through Kidderminster to Kinver, hung a right on the Stourbridge canal to Merryhill (where I work). All in was about 20 miles each way and a lovely, easy ride. Very scenic, esp. around Kinver, and some of the longer low tunnels are quite interesting!
Very good way to get a bit of stamina and fitness back as well.
Do have to say though that it was one of those stupid Sunday morning runs where I just thought if I keep going I'll get to the office - ninety minutes later I was there. Joy. Then remembered I had to turn straight round and ride back
For the eagle eyed (or bothered
) I've put my old continetal cross countries (1.95s) on because although they get a bit sketchy at times they roll so well.
