Weather dry, but dull and not very warm.

Thanks to John T for pics.

Asda, Barnes Hill

Nineteen riders set off from Rowheath in calm dry weather, with a forecast of possible showers.  This turned out to be misleading. The rain started just before the coffee break, and, after a pause, started again, more heavily, as we were setting off on the return. Then, as we were making our separate ways home in the Bournville area, it became torrential.  

We've been out in the rain before, but it is rare for us to get that wet on a Saturday ride.

The route is here.

Thanks to Rose for photos showing (i) waiting in vain for the weather to improve; and (ii) Kings Norton station after the rain.

Two rides today

(i)  A longer ride to Umberslade Farm Park, Tanworth-in-Arden.  Fifteen riders, on a fine day, though with a definite touch of autumn in the air.

The route is here.

(ii)  Just seven riders in fine weather for the ten o'clock ride. Steven led the group through the university, along the Harborne Walkway, around Edgbaston Reservoir, then a coffee-stop in Central Square, before returning on the canal towpath.

The route is here.
