Cole Valley

Twelve riders led by Nick on an interesting and enjoyable longer Sunday ride along the Cole Valley route, with stops at Sheldon Country Park and a pub in Hodge Hill.  Much of the route was new to many of us, with extensive stretches on cycle tracks through parks and woodland.  It was extremely hot.

The route is here.

Thanks to John T for photos from the outward trip, including a sign at the tea rooms, or, as you see, the tea room's, at Sheldon Country Park.

Alvechurch fisheries

Twenty-two riders led by John P to Alvechurch fisheries.  The return route took us via some new and interesting off-road sections, including a path from the fisheries over the canal which joined the road between Barnt Green and Hopwood.  

Weather hot - possibly the hottest day of the year.

The route is here. 

Thanks to John T for photos:
