Hogtrough Lane and Grand Union Canal
By Rudi Kalveks
Many thanks to Iain and Pat Scotter for discovering this route, which features the towpath along the disused Wendover spur of the Grand Union Canal. Though signed as a footpath, it appears that cycling is permitted on the towpath, from the several notice boards placed by the Waterways Authority advising cyclists to “take due care” (for all the obvious reasons). The return route via Dancers End is on-road, making for an easy climb back to The Lee in muddy weather.
Don’t forget: Helmet, puncture repair kit, water, go slow for horses.
