    Riding the Staffordshire and Worcestershire Canal in England?

    Have you done this? How was it?

    Hey Becnal

    I'm live in Staffordshire and have ridden the canals a fair bit around here. In most parts the surface is good but then you have the other parts that are either gravel/rocks or mud which when the weather has been bad, don't really make a good surface to ride on.

    They are usually quiet and in my experience quite boring to ride on with not that great a scenery but plenty of pubs along the way should you need rehydrating.
