Better Towpaths for Everyone - Running and Cycling on Towpaths

Closed 20 Jan 2017

Opened 12 Dec 2016

Results expected 20 Feb 2017


Our towpaths are more popular and are being enjoyed by more people, more often than ever before. In 2015 there were more than 385 million visits to our canals and rivers.

Two of the biggest reasons why people visit towpaths is to go running or cycling along our waterways. As part of our commitment to making towpaths better for everyone, we'd like to know more about YOUR experiences.

Please download our Better Towpaths for Everyone policy to learn more.

This survey will take around five minutes to complete. Winners of the prize draw will be contacted on 27th January 2017.
