Last collection of ride photos for a while, I promise. Today, I went out to Hints, via Canwell, then on to Fazeley and the canal, which I rode until Polesworth. Hopping off the canal there, I rode through Warton to Orton on the Hill, then over to Little Orton, down the ancient track of Salt Street over Appleby Hill. Emerging at No Man’s Heath, I took in Honey Hill, Chilcote, Netherseal, Grangewood, Coton in the Elms and Catton. Returning via Whitemore Haye and Whittington, a great 67 mile ride in blistering sunshine.
If summer ends now, we had a good one right there. But I’d rather it didn’t. It has been a weekend of great rides, wonderful scenery and little wind. It doesn’t get much better, frankly.
Many of these locations will chime with Peter Cutler, who’s walked many of these spots before.
