Cycling from Birmingham to London

Well – I’m going to give it a go at some point over the next two weeks. The things I believe I need to consider are:

  • Can I cycle all the way along the canals – I know its definitely legal but will the route be good enough?
  • How many punctures will I get?
  • What do I need to take with me?
  • How long will it take?
  • Can I make it there on my hybrid bike or will I be at a disadvantage?
  • Where shall I stop on the way?
  • Should I do it the other way round? London to Birmingham?

I would be interested in hearing other peoples routes though I have been hard pressed to find them on the internet. Maybe its not a route a lot of people do. I definitely need to get my fitness up before I leave!
