I’ve spent most of today recovering from yesterday’s ride to Liverpool and entertaining some guests this evening, so no cycling. I also need to upload some photos from the ride – here’s one:
In the meantime, GMCC have flagged up a consultation that’s taking place about cycling on canals.

Canal towpaths are often brilliant for cycling, traversing cities and complex terrain quite directly. Unfortunately, many have fallen into disrepair or simply blocked off – a shame, given they could be great traffic-free routes for cyclists and walkers. My route to Liverpool involved many canal towpaths, some of which have been recently improved – a brilliant example of how proper maintenance can open up useful leisure and commuting routes.
If you’re interested in using canal towpaths for cycling, go and fill out the consultation now.
