This weekend see the start of the Samsung Bike Week which marks a week celebrating cycling.

The event was started by the Cyclists Touring Club in 1923 and each year tens of thousands of cyclists take part.

Samsung Bike Week events offer something for everyone families, schools, companies, to seasoned cyclists and those who have never cycled before.

This biggest nationwide cycling event in the UK encourages people to join in events, rethink their everyday journeys and switch to cycling as the most convenient way to get around.

If you enjoy cycling then a Canal Boat Holiday is a perfect choice for you as the tow paths running along the side of our canals are perfect for a bike ride.

A Canal Boat Holiday will provide you with the chance to get out and about and lead you into the heart of the countryside.

Bikes can be easily secured onto your Canal Boat then just moor up and explore the surrounding countryside.

You will find a 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 Offa's Dyke Path is a Welsh national trail which crosses the beautiful Llangollen Canal at the Pontcysyllte Aqueduct .

There are cycle routes on the Worcester and Birmingham Canal to suit everyone if you only want a gentle ride try The Commandery 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.
