Currently Sir Bradley Wiggins is leading the 2013 Tour of Britain cycle race with just two stages left.

British rider Simon Yates won the sixth stage on Friday after a brilliant sprint finish, but Wiggins still leads the race overall.

The 2013 Tour of Britain is made up of eight different stages across a week.

It started in Scotland last weekend and finishes in London on Sunday.

The Tour of Britain is celebrating its 10th anniversary in 2013, 114 riders, representing 19 teams, have raced through the Lake District, Snowdonia and Dartmoor.

For cycling that is a little less gruelling than the Tour of Britain book a Canal Boat Holiday.

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 Llangollen 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 tow-path.
