Come and explore the local Stourbridge Canal Arm by taking part in the free Sustrans led walk and bike ride starting at the Bonded Warehouse on Saturday 1st June.
The walk sets off at 11.00am for approximately 2 hours and the bike ride starts at 1.30pm again for about 2 hours.
Sustrans believe that the local canal network offers an excellent place for the community to explore and get in touch with nature whilst being active and staying healthy. You will be able to discover hidden habitats in the local community whilst travelling on part of the areas industrial heritage.
These activities are funded by Transport for West Midlands supported by Active Black County and delivered by Sustrans, with the aim of raising awareness of the improved canal towpaths in the Black Country.
Led rides: Participants are required to bring their own bike. The route will be mostly along canal towpaths, so hybrid/mountain bikes are appropriate. Participants are also advised to bring a mobile phone, water, and weather-appropriate clothing and footwear. Adult participants are responsible for the safety of their own bikes. Children must be accompanied by an adult and are required to wear a helmet at all times, unless parental consent is given in writing. Children’s bikes must be roadworthy and safe. Infants carried on the ride must be able to support their upper body (typically over one year old). Please bring refreshments if you think you will require them on the ride. Participants should declare any medical conditions to the ride leader in advance. Riders with acute conditions may need to provide information in case they require assistance on the ride.
