"Glad everyone enjoyed it so much. Thanks to all the ride leaders who did a great job. See Midlands today at 6.30pm for coverage and don't forget you can organise your own bike trains if you want to by creating events on here."

"That's a shame. We would like it to become a regular event, but without being led by us, so if the people on the rides want to do it, could we have a bit on here for people to organise getting together?"

"I regularly see about 6 cyclists during the 10-15 minutes I spend on Warwick Road on my daily commute.    Presumably they don't know about the bike train or just don't want to wait around for other people."

Commuting from Acocks Green to City Centre

Of all the bike trains we're doing, this one has the least sign ups so far. Does anyone know why so few people from Acocks Green and along the Warwick/Stratford Road would do it? Are there fewer cyclists there, or have we just not found them yet?You can still sign up here: http://www.birminghamfoe.org.uk/bfoe-on-transport/birmingham-bike-trains See More
