Some canal folk get a bit upset if you call their narrow boats 'barges'. On the British canal system that term is usually kept for 14'+ wide boats.

I can see the tow path and bridge that I will be riding my bike over in the next half and hour.

After all I didnt ride my bike along the tow path today instead I got a lift in that German U Boat.
