Towpaths on canals, rivers and other waterside paths provide a network of scenic routes for cyclists without the hassle of motor traffic which makes them a great place for a family bike ride.
You can cycle long distances or a short ride as part of a longer route to enjoy the relaxed and friendly environment which could be closer to you than you think; over half the population live within about 10 minutes of a waterway.
You can buy maps and decide your own routes – Ordnance Survey maps show towpaths and other waterside routes
Together we can protect and restore the waterways; Britain's 7,000 miles of canals and navigable rivers need your help.
