Macclesfield Canal - 3rd July 2010

Usual training route, Clarke Lane <=> Higher Poynton Marina, but this time I was accompanied by Allen. He was paddling my Capella, and much to my surprise he managed the 10+ mile round trip with ease.

Took us about 1hr 35 min on the outbound leg, a few boat delays en route either with oncoming traffic or when we were overtaking barges. Stopped for an ice cream and drink at the canal shop at the Higher Poynton Marina.

On the return leg we took 1hr 30min, so it was great that Allen kept up a steady pace for the whole trip. He says he wasn't even that tired at the end.
