No Limits To Health is in the process of developing Cycle Heritage Trails that enable local people and visitors to Birmingham, Sandwell & TheBlack Country explore the rich industrial heritage on modified electric bikes. The canal networks have in recent years been upgraded and provide a fantastic opportunity to develop as traveling routes for leisure, physical exercise, mental wellbeing and tourism. No Limits To Health has secured support in principle from key strategic partners in Birmingham & Wolverhampton City Council as it contributes to their city master plan to increase the number of residents who use cycling as a means of transport, health and leisure.

What we'll deliver:

  • Guided tours between Bimingham & Wolverhampton along canal route 811
  • Guided Heritage Tours of Birmingham and the Rea Valley
  • Guided Tours of Wolverhampton and Bilston to include key historical sites of interest
  • Guided Tours to Sandwell Valley & key sites of interest such as Galton Bridge
  • Guided Tours of Dudley to include the Black Country Museum
  • Guided No Limits Tours of Walsall and key sites
  • 3 Day Cycle Excursions to Elan Valley Reservoir aimed at Schools & Youth Groups

Why it's a great idea:

This is a great way to get people back out on bikes and exploring their local area. In an age of technology, many people young and old spend far too much time inside their cars or homes either on their phones, laptops, or desktops. We need a new way to revive interest in the exploration of our local scenery for physical health and leisure.

Steps to get it done:

  • Fifty local citizens of Wolverhampton, Sandwell, The Black Country or Birmingham take part in an Heritage Tour
  • At least one local school group from the area mentioned in Milestone 1 benefits from an organised cycle activity

This will also support Birmingham City Council and the larger West Midlands Combined Authority's vision to increase cycling and walking activities that promote environmentally friendly living spaces for its citizen's.
