Got a bike business reliant on towpath-riding cyclists? Here’s half a good news story: 1000 miles of the 2000 mile towpath network is being opened again

Half of the towpath network will be open by the weekend

British Waterways closed 70 percent of the towpath network on March 2nd because of FMD fears. It closed 100 percent of the canals.

Even many urban towpaths, miles from farm animals of any sort, were closed.

To check if your local stretch of towpath is being re-opened go to www.britishwaterways.co.uk
