Today, I took a 70 mile ride around the canals of North Walsall, Wolverhampton, South Staffordshire, Stourbridge, Dudley, Oldbury, Birmingham and east Walsall. I entered the canal system at Goscote, in Walsall, and didn’t leave it again until Aldridge, some 65 miles later. What I found was a wonderfully peaceful world of limpid water, greenery and a huge amount of wildlife. There was beauty in unexpected places. I traversed the Netherton Tunnel, and came through the inner city as well as rolling countryside.
Detail of my route in a future post.
A great day with fine weather. For more of this sort of stuff, please check out my 365daysofbiking journal.
