    We'd like a short break before the weather changes for the worse (if that's possible up here in Staffs). Any ideas for campsites close to easy flat cycling? - well paved canal towpaths are a favourite but anywhere flat considered. Preferably within 100 miles or so of our neck of the woods.

    The CC campsite near Hythe, Kent has access to the Romney Marshes where there are miles and miles of flat cycling to be had.:Smile:

    Look up Tissington Trail and Carsington Water.

    Carsington Water has a really nice 8 mile track round it.
