Cannon Hill park

John P led eleven riders to Cannon Hill park on a damp and cold Easter Saturday.  Early rain had stopped by the time we set off, and most of the ride was dry, but it was raining again by the time we got home.    

The towpath is still closed at Edgbaston tunnel, following delays to the work to widen the path.  The expected completion date is now 20th May.

Today's route is here.

Costa Coffee, city centre

Thanks to Richard for this report of the ride he led on Saturday, and for mapping the route.  

A brave or foolhardy 7 set out in high winds and sub zero temperatures to Costa in the City Centre via the canal and Edgbaston Reservoir.  A sign of the wind strength was when two fishermen we spoke to on the Reservoir said they were giving up because the waves were too high. 

A much more pleasant return via the Rea Valley route with the wind at our backs and a brief glimpse of the sun.

The route is here.

No ride today

Eight of us met at Rowheath, where radiator and boiler problems had delayed the opening of the cafĂ©.  We went instead to Leverton and Halls at the bottom of Maryvale Road, which was warm and comfortable, and doing a roaring trade.
