Longer ride to Sutton Park

A repeat of John T's enjoyable tour of parks and towpaths, with a coffee stop at Forge Mill farm and lunch at the café at the town gate of Sutton Park.  We had a few mechanical problems, starting with a suspected puncture in John's front tyre, which he dealt with by changing the wheel before we set off.  A problem with Jane T's chain, which seemed to be fixed in Westfield Road, became more serious when we were on the towpath, resulting in Jane having to push the bike into town and get the train home.

Eight set off, and two caught the train back from Sutton Coldfield. Five riders completed the ride both ways.

Weather warm, dry, mostly cloudy and quite breezy.

The route is here.
