WHAT'S SO GREAT ABOUT THIS TRIP?
Our journey starts with a gentle, canalside cycle out of Birmingham along the Birmingham and Fazeley Canal. Paved sections only so it's suitable for the road bikers.
After Tyburn, a pretty National Cycle Route takes us around Pype Hayes Park and through New Hall Valley country park. Lunch will be provided by the Black Root Bistro in Sutton Park. Delicious wraps and flatbreads. We'll enjoy them in a gorgeous hidden spot overlooking Fisherwick Brook.
After lunch, Minor B roads and suburban riding make way for open countryside and splendid views. The long stretch of riding from Seckington through Clifton Campville to Lullington is wonderful. Before we reach Timber, there'll be chance to enjoy the first beer of the weekend at the Colvile Arms in Lullington. Landlord Neil plans to open just for us!
We plan to arrive at Timber by latest 4pm.
