Ruth Ruderham, head of fundraising at the Trust said: "Our waterways are a national treasure, we want to improve them even more, and it is with this in mind that we are hosting these two challenges for 2014. Both events offer a great opportunity for you to experience the waterways in a completely different way, whether that’s journeying along the Grand Union Canal by foot, or taking in famous waterway landmarks as part of a peloton of cyclists travelling from London to Leeds. We want to see over 150 participants across both events, so if you’re looking to brush of the cobwebs and get in training this new year, they could be just the events for you. And even better, by taking part you’ll be raising money that will support important projects on local canals and rivers."
