I have just done the 1st stage of a ride on the Grand Union from West Drayton to Milton Keynes (Approx 50 miles) It really has some beautiful parts. I'd like to do the full ride to Leamington Spa (approx 103 miles) and if anyone is interested, please let me know. The ground needs to be dry and relatively good weather predicted. There are plenty of trains back and these are relatively cheap off-peak at the weekends.
