Nearing Rugby, Oxford Canal

This morning we were up and away by nine, mainly because we planned to stop early so Eric could watch the Hungarian Grand Prix. Ben and I walked the towpath which was grassy and bumpy so just three bikers out for a very bumpy ride.  Loads of boats about and we arrived at Hillmorton Locks  second in the queue. Lovely easy locks after those big double clocks and the duplicated chambers meant it was quick too. All we needed was a place to moor as this section of the Oxford Canal has lots of canalside greenery. A mooring place found about a mile out of Rugby (next to the golf course), just right for Ben's morning walk along the towpath before we do a food shop at Tesco's tomorrow.
