Gorilla café, King's Heath

A chilly start to a fine autumn day.  As our intended destination, the Two Mugs café in Shirley, was closed for refurbishment we went instead to the Gorilla café in King's Heath.

Six riders, led by Richard.

The route is here.

Rained off

Five hopefuls turned up at Rowheath in very heavy rain.  With no sign of an improvement in the weather, we made a rare decision to call off the ride.

Warley Woods golf club

John and Alan led a group of six on an interesting ride to Warley Woods, via the towpath, Harborne walkway and various residential streets of Edgbaston.  The return was more familiar - over Hagley Road, Harborne and Weoley Castle.

The route is here.

Waseley Hills country park

John P led our first ride to Waseley Hills since the café reopened under new management.   It has been redecorated and the stove, which wasn't working last winter, was belting out more heat than we needed on a fairly mild dry day.  

Nice to have Waseley Hills restored to our list of warm destinations for the winter.

Fifteen riders.

The route is here.

Many thanks to Richard O for photos.

M and S, Longbridge

We chose a short route because we were expecting heavy rain and strong winds.  The forecast turned out to be wrong, at least for the morning, and we had a pleasant, dry outing.

Four riders.
