Woodgate Valley

A fine bright day.  Steve led 19 riders to Woodgate Valley country park.  The route is here.

 At 1.00 pm Richard led a group of nine from Rowheath to Cannon Hill Park, for a gathering organised by Pushbikes at which candidates for the West Midlands mayor election gave brief speeches about their plans to encourage cycling in the region.  Beverley Nielsen (Lib Dem) turned up with (and possibly on) a bike; Sion Simon (Labour) was wearing a suit and didn't claim to have come by bike; Pete Durnell (UKIP) was wearing shorts; James Burn (Green) sent his apologies and a representative who spoke on his behalf; Graham Stevenson (Communist) sent his apologies; and Andy Street (Conservative) arrived late (not on a bike) because, as he assured us, he had been in top level discussions with Downing Street.

Asda, Barnes Hill

Twenty-one riders led by John B to Asda at Barnes Hill - or, more accurately, 17 riders on the outward trip, because Richard went back to Rowheath to collect three latecomers, and led them to the cafe.  

Cold and breezy day.  

The route is here.

City centre

Twenty-five riders led by John P to the city centre via Harborne walkway, back via the towpath. The lovely weather attracted a lot of strolling pedestrians to the canal area near the ICC, where we had to get off our bikes for quite a long stretch.

The route is here.

Thanks to John P for photos.

The route is here.
