Inspired by the Olympics? Have nothing planned for this afternoon? Dust your bike off and join us for a social beginners ride!
The last bike ride organised by Digbeth resident Val was a route including Sarehole Mill and was attended by 18 people. See some pictures below, along with some more information about today’s expedition!
Get out on your bike and have fun! Join us for a social ride and explore Digbeth.
It’s perfect for beginner and those that haven’t been out on their bike for a while. We’ll always ride at the pace of the slowest rider so no one is left behind.
It’s a good idea to bring some water and you may also want to bring a snack or you can buy refreshments so please bring some money. Wearing a helmet is advisable; if you don’t have one please do not to worry you can still take part. If you enjoy the bike ride and would like to come again perhaps you could look to buy one then.
Apologies for delay in adding details. I was waiting to check the weather forecast. Its not bad, so the canals should not be too muddy, and a picnic should be fun.
Plan therefore is a circular going to the canal via a few quiet roads in Lee Bank; along the Worcester and Birmingham canal to Kings Norton and then back along cycle route 5 through Cannon Hill Park and some more quiet roads to Digbeth.
Lets have a late season picnic in Kings Norton Park. I’ll provide some goodies – there is not a handy café.
Toilets in Cannon Hill Park, but afraid there are few elsewhere.
Parking usually okay on the streets of Digbeth on Saturdays.
Look forward to seeing you there!
For more information, please check the Sky Ride website, but hurry, it sets off at 11:00!
