This easy cycle ride takes you along a section of the Bridgewater Canal from Pennington Flash to Marshland Bridge, via Leigh. The route runs for just under 4 miles along the flat towpath. There's locks, a swing bridge and lots of barges to see along the way.
The ride starts at the Plank Lane Marina in Pennington Flash. You then head east through Leigh and Bedford to Marshland Bridge, where the route finishes.
You can extend your exercise by enjoying a cycle or walk around Pennington Flash. There's lots of nice trails here and a 170 acre lake which is now a nature reserve with a number of bird hides.
For a longer walking route along the canal see the Bridgewater Way page.
