I've done this route but missed out the canal toe-path as my road bike wasn't up to it. There are several other stating points.

Newton Burgoland, Heather and Packington have pub carparks to start from. congerstone has a closed pub so don't know if the carpark is available but it's a good meeting point.

Good cycling in this area with gentle, rolling hills and great views.

Superb route !!

Actually started at Packington. There is a public recreation ground and car park there by Vicarage Lane.

This gives you 15 mins before arriving at the canal.

Great spot for picnic lunch.

Lovelly views, lovelly villages to pass through.

A fair few hills but nothing impossible and the down grades quite exhillerating !!

Recommend to anyone!!
