Thread: Halo from kayaker in Leicester

    Default Halo from kayaker in Leicester

    Hi guys newby from Leicester I am in process of purchasing a kayak first time to the water a few weeks ago and loved it, any recommended river/ canal routes? I am also hoping to go from Leicester to Nottingham so again a good route would be appreciated.

    Any events or groups around these parts?

    Hello and Welcome!

    There are quite a few active paddlers in your area, keep an eye on the Meets section. They often meet at Barrow-upon-Soar, we've had a few fun weekends there this year.

    This was the biggest meet: http://www.songofthepaddle.co.uk/for...-2017-The-Blog

    Cankay is normally the man who steps up and organises stuff, all very much welcome.

    Have a look here, getting to Nottingham should be easy enough, via the Soar, Trent and Beeston Canal: http://www.paddlepoints.net/paddlepo...%20upon%20soar
    Covering as many malmiles as possible before being distracted by the pub!
