Sutton Park

John T led 15 riders on a longer ride to Sutton Park.  Three returned from Deykin Avenue near Spaghetti Junction, one made his own way back from Sutton Coldfield after the cafĂ© stop, and eleven cycled the whole route.  We were unlucky to be caught in a very heavy downpour as we arrived in the park.  Otherwise the weather was fine and dry.

The route is here.

Photo below was taken by John T (who therefore isn't in it) on the way back into Birmingham.

Marks and Spencer, Longbridge

Twenty-one riders led by Richard to a new destination for the Saturday ride.  Useful to discover that there is cycle parking in the car park adjacent to M and S, with direct access to the store.  

The route is here.

Cannon Hill Park

Eleven riders were not put off by a damp and drizzly start.  We were led by John B on an interesting and scenic route via the canal and paths through university to the Vale, then to Cannon Hill Park, with a detour on the way home through Highbury park.  

The rain cleared up early on.  No sun, but we were warm and dry.

The route is here.

Two rides today

A turnout of 32 riders, rather too many for a single group, so two groups left for different destinations.  John B led a group of 16 to the Maypole and Richard led the rest to Sarehole Mill.

The Sarehole Mill route is here.  Thanks to John T for photos.
