Coffee#1, Shirley

A lovely sunny day, if a bit chilly.  Richard led six riders to Coffee#1, near Asda in Shirley, chosen after we found there weren't enough seats available at the Two Mugs café. 

The route, which is here, shows our diversion from the Two Mugs café.  Coffee #1 is just across Shirley park, so the direct route there doesn't involve the busy area of the main road.

Costa coffee, city centre

John P led a group of twelve to the city centre via the canal, Harborne walkway and Edgbaston reservoir, on the coldest ride since last winter, with a bitter wind and brief hints of snow.   The wind dropped on the way home, making for an easier return along the canal to Bournville.

The route is here.

Woodgate Valley

A different route to a familiar destination.  John P led a group of eight to Woodgate Valley, going out via our usual return route, with some variations, and back through the park and via the Bournbrook path to join the canal at University station.  

Interesting to discover going this way round that the path through the park is noticeably downhill.   

Weather fine, if a bit chilly.

The route is here.

Waseley Hills

M and S, Longbridge

The sort of weather which makes you wonder what you were thinking of when you set off in steady soaking rain.  

Three of us had a short wet ride to M and S in Longbridge via the usual Rea Valley route.

Cannon Hill Park

A warm, very windy day with early rain.  John P led ten riders to Cannon Hill Park.  On the return, four of us put in an extra loop along the canal, through King's Norton Park and across Victoria Common, while the others returned via the usual route through Stirchley.

The longer route is here.

Warley Woods

Steve led a group of five to Warley Woods, following the route of the ride he led on bank holiday Monday.  It includes the path through Harborne golf course, which many of us didn't know was there, and looks easier on the way back than it would be going the other way.

The route is here.

Kiss Me Cupcakes, West Heath

Despite a dismal forecast, ten riders turned up in the rain for a ride led by Richard to Kiss Me Cupcakes in West Heath.  In steady and persistent rain, we took a shortened route back.

The route is here.
