I'll lead to the Wyre Forest Visitor Centre.

The route will be http://www.bikely.com/maps/bike-path/Be ... yre-Forest
or something pretty similar. [Sean Barker's route has an unnecessary trip along the the dual carriageway and back between Day House Bank and Belbroughton.]

It is about 55 miles and pretty hilly, though less so on the way back.

Anyone thinking of moving up from the C Run is welcome.

May see you there Phil. Lisa and I will be dragging Thomas along in the trailer via the forest.

Hi, if no one else has spoken up for this Sunday's A run I'd like to take it to Croome Park please, route details to follow but flat would be order of the day.

As previously mentioned, this Sunday's c run will be a steady 50 mile ride to Lavendar Hall fisheries. This is intentionally a "soft" route to provide an opportunity for previous intro. Riders who may be unsure of stepping up to a club run to join us (and also an antidote to last weeks hills for those of us better suited to this terrain!!!). Added bonus of a very reasonable £4 for beans on toast and coffee.

The route for the A run to Croome will resemble this

but obviously starting from Northfield. Approx 45 miles to cafe stop , overall distance of about 75 to 80 miles.

On todays A run to Croome Park were
Martin McGowan
Alan Weaver
Matt Regan
Phil Whiteman
Ian Taylor
Keith Adcock
Craig Walmsley
Andrew Curley

John Hitchcock rode with us most of the way to cafe but peeled off just before we stopped.
George Barker met us at cafe & rode back part of the way with us.
We also met Lisa & Thomas at the cafe.
A nice day for the time of year but a bit of a headwind on return leg made for hard work & legs are bit tired now. Thanks to all for the company & help on the front.

B Run riders were:

Phil Gameson (leader)
Jamie Dennis
Rob Wade
Paul Johnson
Steve Philpott
Jess Dent
Ryan Strait
Tobey Draper
Andy Gilmore?
Kim Shapiro
Chris Thomson
Gareth Powley

Apologies if I have missed anyone out or got your name wrong - someone reminded me to take a list as we were leaving the café and all I could find to write with a blunt kids crayon.

Another glorious October day, though there was a headwind on the way back.

It is one of the hilliest B run routes so the pace was adjusted accordingly.
[Well within the official guidelines.]

Philip Whiteman
Andy Curley
Keith Adcock
Craig Walmsley
Matt Regan
Alan Weaver

George Barker (independent)

John Hitchcock rode a third of the route but did not attend the cafe.
