We love and care for your canals and rivers, because everyone deserves a place to escape.

Our towpaths offer traffic-free routes next to some of the country’s most stunning waterside scenery. Taking to the towpaths on two wheels is a great way to get some exercise and with thousands of miles of fairly level towpaths, you can enjoy them whatever your age or cycling ability.

Providing green corridors through our cities and linking our towns and villages together, you can use our towpaths to enjoy an afternoon out with your family, a traffic-free route to work or even a week-long tour of the country.

We welcome all considerate cyclists to our towpaths and you don't need a permit. However, we would ask that you take a look at our Towpath Code before you take to the towpaths.
