Hi Phil

Maybe we do in places near Dudley. I ride through the town centre to Burnt Tree island and then down through Tividale where I join the canal which takes me straight  to the gates of Birmingham City Hospital.

Use the roads when its wet through Oldbury.

How do you find the singlespeed on the hills?

Andy
