Thatcham to Hungerford Canal Route

Went for a wobble on Saturday with my mate. Followed the Kennet and Avon canal from Thatcham to Hungerford and back, which was just over 30 miles. Here's the outward leg of the ride if you're interested in seeing what it looks like (don't worry...it's not in real time ;))

Just after Kintbury we had to stop, slightly double back and take the road for the last 3 miles as the tow path was impassable due to it being deep mud (looked like the canal had flooded at that point a couple of days earlier) and it was impossible to get the tyres to grip. Anyhoo... beautiful route if you're ever down that way.

 
I really enjoy the K&A. Cycled it from Reading to Bath once & walked it a couple of times.

Good vid of your ride 😁
