You’ll join the canal in Edgwick before heading northwards towards Longford past the Ricoh Arena – home to both the city’s football team and Wasps RFC.

You’ll also pass Hawkesbury Junction, where you’ll briefly meet the Oxford Canal, before making your way back to the starting point via Exhall, Bedworth, Bulkington and Shilton.
