Cycling on canal towpaths

The Canal and River Trust welcomes all users and encourages you to respect the serenity of the local environment and each other.

Our waterways can be very lively spaces. Visit and you could see cyclists, walkers, boaters, anglers, kayakers and even horses pulling boats along the water. With so many activities taking place, there is a need for people to share the space considerately. To make sure everyone gets the most out of their time by the water, Canal and River Trust have put together a towpath guide.
