Leon Lewis replied to Rich22222's discussion Longbridge Light Festival - and Rea Valley route
"Just to note: As you come off the Rea Valley route on Tessall Lane. Turn left and then a right and cycle through the Austin Social Club car park - much quicker and quieter than turning towards the Bristol Rd (A38) to get to the college/Longbridge…"

"Windy again this morning especially the final bit as I turn onto the New Longbridge town Centre by the College - It will be full of Formula 1 cars looking for a cheap wind tunnel for testing soon."

Leon Lewis replied to Rohini Cash's discussion How would you like to be paid to commute by bike?

"I walked up to the Bluebell from Yardley Wood and some bits were very rutted and others very muddy - sadly this stretch will not get any funding to improve the tow path.  At least there are still some good pubs on route - though the Bulls Head…"
