Urban Paddling Tour information:
An excellent journey for people wanting to explore a bit of Leicester from the water. Our minibus will take you to the start of the Tour towards Aylestone Meadows. From there we will pass a variety of city landmarks including Leicester City Football Stadium! The trip involves some moving around - "portaging" around weirs and locks. We will paddle back to LOPC through Frog Island and Abbey Park, with the potential for a stop at the Café depending on time.
Some paddling experience would be best for this trip as it would involve a lengthy paddle (approx. 4-5 hours), and some moving of boats.
You would need to bring lunch, plenty of snacks and drinks plus spare clothing for afterwards. Bring some money if you would like to try the shop at Abbey Park, but it does often have short opening times so please don't rely on this!
Our sessions will begin with "Women's Only" and will appear in the Calendar alongside other sessions.
