Mick, tell me about it!
Their are some sections that are terrible. I wrote an email to the Canal Trust about it, and they were really prompt in getting back to me. The problem they have is funding, they are trying to get a grant from the local authority and sustrans, but I won't be holding my breath!
The ironic thing is that the section that I came a cropper on is one of the best bits of my ride in.
Which canal do you take, I ride the Grand Union into Brum from Solihull.
Same section solihull into the city, although im just doing it for the run out
have been the other direction a few times, nice to get out into the country side away from the traffic etc had a good run down to Lemington Spa the other week with a stop for cake at Hatton locks on the way back
yes it would be great if they could get some more cash to upgrade the realy rough sections .....one day ...maybe !!
