I tried a slightly different route today, which didn't go quite to plan. Instead of going straight up the canal, turning round, and then coming straight back, I tried turning off the canal onto the 'greenway' - a pedestrian/cycle path that runs past the olympic site. It seemed to stop suddenly though, leading me onto a road going past a lot of building works and hi-viz guys, before finally turning onto the busy Stratford High Street. I think I need to try these routes out on my bike first before finding myself at a dead end mid-run. Or maybe stick to the straight line up the canal and back again. Although the circular route did have more variation in gradient etc. which I don't get on the canal path...
