    Thanks, dont suppose you've cycled to Telford, Shrewsbury along route 81? If so, is that fairly easy or not?

    Yeah, done that a few time, but more often to and from walsall, I sometime do the Wolverhampton run to extend the ride.

    Towpath all the way going from good to "a bit ruff in places", but never bad.

    just wondering how long is the tunnel m8?

    done the netherton tunnel a couple of times thats quite a buzz lol

    if you stay on the birmingham new line after the barge and barrel it's not as boggy as the old line by the m5
