The canal towpaths are, on the whole, excellent cycling routes. This section south of Tamworth is an exception, however. Tree roots make for a teeth-rattling experience so concentration is vital; this is sad as the rider is likely to miss some great scenes, just like this one. On these occasions I wish I rode a mountain bike rather than my trusty tourer.
On the other side of the bridge the footpath improves, and is great all the way to Bodymoor Heath.
