The Leeds and Liverpool Canal

 Tues.20th April 2010.
            It's been a lovely but cool spring day, temp.8c Today we had our first bike ride this year and to ease us into it we chose a level ride along probably one of the more picturesque stretches of the Leeds and Liverpool Canal between Barrowford and Barnoldswick, a round trip of about 17 miles. This is the highest section of the canal before it starts to descend into Yorkshire through the Aire gap. Riding along we had a constant accompaniment of Willow Warbler song  which made the whole ride very enjoyable.

  1. I have not got my bike out yet so you are ahead of me, I love the canal for cycling as you say it's flat and plenty to see. Hope you had your licence with you :)
