Start at the Stag and 3 horseshoes pub top of Mucklows hill opposite Streetbike.
A challenging hill ride around the Romsley and Clent hillside . This ride starts at the stag and 3 horseshoes pub opposite streetbike and is a basic loop taking in Frankley, Illey, Romsley, Walton Hill, Clent Hill highest point before returning back via Romsley and then Manor Way up to Streetbike opposite original start point. It's quite a hard ride due to the elevation with some quite steep sections in places so if you do not like hills this is not for you although if you want to give it a go and can achieve an overall pace of about 10mph you are welcome to join us. An opportunity for a breather on top of Clent at Nimmings Wood cafe but this ride needs the weather to be kind. Practise run done on 7.10.11 clocked 18 mile and 470m of ascent with very tired legs averaged 10.8mph . Please keep an eye on weather as previously advised we will be taking on some little used lanes that get muddy and covered in leaves so bike choice is key will update again on Saturday. WEATHER LOOKING GOOD DON'T FORGET CLOCKS GO BACK AND SEE YOU SUNDAY 8.30
