Costa Coffee, city centre

A big turnout for our last ride of the year.  John P led a group of 23 to Costa Coffee in the city centre, via the Harborne walkway, where we were treated to a volley of abuse from the owner of an out-of-control dog and where, more seriously, John B's chain broke.  As it could not be repaired, he made his way home by freewheeling down hills and walking up them.

A dry and unseasonally mild day.

The route is here.

Queen Elizabeth hospital

Despite bitter cold and a biting wind, nine people turned up for a ride.  John P led us to QEH, a good destination in bad weather - a warm café and not far to go.

The route is here.

Morso café, Alvechurch

Seven riders on a chill, calm winter day.  Towpath from Alvechurch to Hopwood reasonable on a bike, but would have been unpleasantly muddy for a walk.

The route is here.

Warley Woods

Twelve riders out, led by Richard to Warley Woods, where we found Father Christmas and the elves making the café rather busy.  Cool, windy but sunny morning.

Cannon Hill Park

A wet start with light rain which lasted throughout the ride.  John P led a group of 13 to Cannon Hill Park, via our usual route, which is here, along the canal and the Rea valley.

Many thanks to Carol and Andy for organising an enjoyable Christmas lunch at the Toby Carvery in Cotteridge, which followed the ride, and where we were joined by other BGC members.
