The British ladies team have won gold at the World Track cycling Championships, the Olympic gold medallists Laura Trott and Dani King joined up with Elinor Barker to win the women's team pursuit, beating Australia in the final.

It is the first gold medal for GB at the championships, which is one of the biggest events in cycling.

If you love cycling then a Canal Boat Holiday is a perfect choice for you.

You can find a cycle trail that is perfect for you a gentle ride along the side of the towpath or an adrenalin fuelled race over tracks and hills.

Depending on the location you chose your Canal Boat Holiday can offer you some glorious cycling opportunities.

The Offals Dyke Path is a Welsh national trail which crosses the beautiful Llanelli Canal at the Polysyllable Aqueduct.

There are cycle routes on the Worcester and Birmingham Canal to suit everyone if you only want a gentle ride try The Commander to Worcester which is ideal for children as it is only just over 3 km.

For the more adventurous try the route from Kings Norton on the Worcester and Birmingham Canal into the heart of Birmingham at Gas Street Basin.

The cycle route along the Kennet And Avon Canal is superbly way marked by Sumatrans the cycle charity.

You do need to be very careful when cycling on the canal bank and give consideration to walkers, fishermen and the wild life such as nesting swans or ducks who also use the canal towpath .
