To run along side Ed's post of the 2012 West Midlands rides :

http://www.retrobike.co.uk/forum/viewtopic.php?t=178909

This thread is to see which venues people would like to see rides organised.The West Midlands is a big area,which some great places to get out on a bike

If we can come up with some new venues,then hopefully it will result in better turnout for the rides in our area.

Suggestions so far are :


- FoD
- Elan Valley
- Black Mountains
- Gap ride
- Cotswolds
- Long Mynd
- Malvern Hills
- Haugh Woods

good suggestions/bad suggestions ? ,lets get some feedback

So.......
➡️ Roll up, roll up , where would you like to see rides organized :?:

I did a Great ride in Worcestershire last year over Bredon Hill...I'd be Happy to pore over the Maps & make the route slightly better. Plenty of Climbing with some hiking, but a mix of lanes provides some nice respite. Really nice area and I did see a Pub with benches outside...Gonna have to be a warm weather one that though & I'll have to pencil in when I know where I'm at location wise. Could be out the country over Spring?...

Sounds good.

I've done a bit of green laning in South Shropshire but never taken a MTB.

Sounds like a good one to put down theredchili :D

Will get some info together this week on a route. It'll be a late Spring ride at best & again depends on my situ, where I'll be around then...
Keep you all posted though.
