Cannon Hill Park - The main car park at the bridge to the M.A.C.
Cannon Hill C.C Introductory Ride
A warm welcome to all those who wish to return to cycling or wish to start cycling with a few rides in their legs. If you’re looking for a relaxed, social ride at a leisurely pace, this one is for you! We will go at the pace of the slowest rider and never leave anyone behind.
This is a 14 mile route from Cannon Hill Park to the pleasant country lanes only a short distance from Edgbaston, Moseley, Kings Heath and Kings Norton.
Climbing out of the park we swiftly turn on Primrose Hill to roll towards Forhill and The Peacock Inn. A rolling road takes you to the top of Weatheroak Hill and the steady passage of Clews Lane.
Left onto Middle Lane and a gentle rise to Dark Lane and the delightful hidden lane of Crabmill, a stone’s throw from the Maypole Island but you could be miles from the city!
We use the bus lanes on Alcester road to turn on Broad Lane and the swift drop on Allens Croft
Following the route that we took out of the city with a couple of steady climbs and the drop back down Russell Road for a chat and coffee at ‘The Café In The Park’, our usual meeting place.
Come and try it, fresh air, good companionship and a good way of joining one of this country’s increasingly popular sports!
