Lichfield routes? (not the chase)
I’m going to be in Lichfield at the parents the next day or two. How long I stay depends on whether I can get out for a ride. The road bike is currently in bits while I belatedly fit mudguards so I’m looking for an mtb route.
Anywhere else I should consider?Posted 4 years agoneilsonwheelsMember
Hopwas is deffinatly worth a punt. It is no Cannock chase but it will kill a couple of hours. If you go there via the back of the golf course I think there is a trail that runs all the way there. Sutton park is close as well but loads of dog walkers to contend with. Bentley woods are worth a look. Jump on the canal and go through Tamworth and all the way to Grendon, jump off at spon lane, climb boothill and Bentley woods are at the top. Loads of stuff to play with up there.Posted 4 years agoKarl33toMember
I live right under the start and finish point of that ride and nearly always head straight to Cannock.Posted 4 years ago
Very occasionally I’ll head to Sutton Park instead, but you get a lot of walkers round there.
I’d considered rising to Hopwas before, but it’s just to small to be worth the bother, and could well be a mud fest this time of year.
Mud is a good point: my memories of hopwas as a kid are of vast bogs that swallowed your wellies. Barnt Green may need to wait for next time but looks like a plan for 2014. I think I’m remembering why childhood holidays were spent driving to the peak.
Thanks everyone, I figured that the chase was probably the best bet on the Lichfield side of Brum but thought I should ask.Posted 4 years ago
