Re: Saturday 18th September, 9:15 B ride to Heightington (Nothing Bound brewery taphouse)

Well if you missed this, you missed a great ride. We were treated to some wonderful late summer weather, on a route largely familiar to most, but with a different route through Wyre Forest up to Far Forest (via Meaton Lane). After a good amount of climbing, we'd earned our reward 😉. Fat Eddie was wa...

I'll lead a Saturday ride to Heightington - Nothing Bound brewery taphouse departing the Black Horse at 9:15. Nothing Bound produce a range of Pales and IPAs (plus the occasional stout). The taphouse (open from midday) is in a converted barn and a lovely setting to sample some of the quality beers o...

Hi Michelle,
I will have another (shorter) route in case it looks like rain, but still planning to head to Cob House and leaving the BH at 8:45.
If dry and we stick to the original route, I reckon we'd get to Worcester by 12:30-1, then 1.5hrs or so back to Brum.
