On the towpath near Swains Lock

These routes use a mix of paved and unpaved roads and trails, which make them idea for leisure mountain and hybrid bicycle rides. The unpaved sections are "non-technical", which means you don't have to deal with obstacles like logs and rocks. These routes work best with "cross" tires that are designed for both on and off road conditions. Recommended tire sizes that are at least (700 x 38) or (26" x 1.25")
