An exciting local paddle that starts on the twisty back waters of enderby, passes by Soar Valley and through Aylestone. Covering nearly 10 miles of the Soar Tour. Once we arrive back at LOPC and you've had a nice warm shower, a cup of nice warm soup and a roll will be ready to warm you back up. The usual tea, coffee and chat will be available too.

We meet at LOPC, load boats and drive to Jubilee Park, unload and paddle back to LOPC stopping for packed lunch along the way. This is suitable for anyone that is happy with the distance and is quite an easy trip. If you want to make it easy, go tandem in a Canoe or double kayak.

The route has 5 great weirs. 2 of which are nice fun big ones. All of them are optional and are easily portaged if you don't fancy it on the day. Along the way you may be lucky enough to see kingfishers, swans and even, rumour has it, otters.

Club kit is available, just enter details on the booking form, although you'll be helping to load it anyway!
