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…"

Leon Lewis replied to Basil's discussion Today's Commute
"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 david.cherry's discussion SkyRide 2014
"Have you ever tried to park your cycle in the Bullring car parks? I ended up taking my bike in a lift and walking it through the shopping centre as there weren't any bike stands in the car park - every security guard in the shopping centre…"

Leon Lewis replied to Rohini Cash's discussion How would you like to be paid to commute by bike?
"I just realised that my calculations were based on miles and the French system was paying per Km Normal commute would mean £20 or £24  "

Leon Lewis replied to Rohini Cash's discussion How would you like to be paid to commute by bike?
"I like the idea, it would mean I could get paid £13 per week just for my commute - though I would probably take my longer route to raise that to £15 B-)"

Leon Lewis replied to Martin Brailsford's discussion Birmingham to Stratford via canal
"The mud starts just after the bridge on School Road, Yardley Wood, then there are patches all the way to Lady Lane."

Leon Lewis replied to Martin Brailsford's discussion Birmingham to Stratford via canal
"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…"

Leon Lewis replied to Surrinder Kumar's discussion No of Employees as % cycling at your place of work?
"I think we have approx 300 employees at Bournville College, there is a regular group of 8-10 cyclists and then perhaps add another 10 fair weather crew too! I've been trying to improve it for the last 2 years.  We do get about 30 students…"

Leon Lewis replied to H Jones's discussion Does anyone have local knowledge on Kings Heath?
"Never ever seen the attraction to living on the roads off the HIgh St in King's Heath. Crammed together, poor parking. The High St has been gone down hill over the last ten years, traffic is terrible.  I agree with folk that Stirchley…"

"Yardley Wood to Longbridge  Bus - 1hr (inc walk to bus stop)  Car - 15-20mins Bike 25-35mins I feel more with it on days that I cycle, though recently, like most of us, started to lose the will to live for a dry cycle. I tend to stick to…"
