Bournville - Maypole

Too large a group (17) for the cafe at the Lickeys, so John and Hilary led a ride to the Maypole, where we had coffee at Sainsbury's. Weather fine, lanes very wet and muddy. The route is here.

Bournville - Cannon Hill Park

Many thanks to John Porter, whose description of the ride has been roughly mapped here.  Raining at the start, and some rain during the morning, but mostly a dry ride.  Eight riders, joined by Carl at the cafĂ© at Cannon Hill.  Ride led by John and Hilary.

Bike maintenance

No ride on 28th December.  On 4th January we had a well-attended (17 people) session on basic bike maintenance in a room at Rowheath pavilion, including:
  • demonstrations of removing wheels and changing an inner tube
  •  guidance on oiling and greasing 
  • replacing brake blocks
  • advice on the proper fit of a helmet
  • advice on tools/parts to take on rides
Thanks to John Porter, Carl and Kay.
