A short ride through South Staffordshire to blow the cobwebs away. We will meet at the motorway services at M42 J2, near Starbucks, and then take the back lanes to Bobbington. We will avoid motorways, and ride through some twisty lanes and some pretty villages. On arrival at Halfpenny Green Airport we will have a leisurely breakfast before setting off back to Hopwood Services, via a different route.
Note: If the weather is not great we will still ride, but keep to more main roads. If weather is awful we will turn this into a breakfast meet and turn up in cars, sledges or by boat, whatever is appropriate.
Please keep your eyes peeled for updates closer to the event date.
