The Worcester & Birmingham Canal is perhaps the city’s best canal route. Flat and direct, it links Bournville, Selly Oak and Edgbaston to the city centre. The surface may not be tarmac but is generally good quality. There’s no cycling past Gas Street Basin, in the city centre, but you can dive off onto back streets here.
