The London Legacy Loop takes you on a six and a half mile route, from Limehouse Basin, along the Limehouse Cut canal and around the iconic Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.
The route travels along the oldest canal in London, from Victorian to modern history, celebrating victories of engineering and sporting glory. With no locks and at a fairly short distance this route should be suitable for most people. There is also the option to hire boats at the start from Moo Canoes, who are based in Limehouse Basin.
To celebrate each paddlers victory, everyone who takes on the challenge can register their time and get their name on the leaderboard.
You can download the full information for the route, including a link to a map and GPX file here.
