Meet on the canal at King's Road, Tyseley.
Starting at the Great Union Canal on King's Road, Tyseley, this is a fast dash along the towpaths into the centre of Birmingham. From there it's a sprint on the towpath, over the numerous bridges, down towards Aston & the M6; then it's a hard, gradual climb back up to Digbeth. Total distance, roughly 15 miles.
Sometimes there's a pub stop at The Woodman, Millennium Point.
