Last night myself, Andy, Jess and Neil, with the company of a few other friends completed a 39KM round trip south of Birmingham. We set off at 9pm just after it had got dark, and rode out to the lakes of Earlswood. The twilight made it look like a scene from a horror film, and we even had the handheld camera to add more effect. We decided to aim for Lowsonford a further 9km, but when we got there the pub was closed (at 10pm?) so we took a pretty steep hill up to another pub which was also closed (10PM!!) luckily our last pub attempt paid off, the nice bar lady was supposed to shut at 10 too, but stayed open to we could get a rest up and a drink.
We left Lapworth at 11ish and pushed through the darkness until we reached the lights of Dorridge, Solihull, Shirley then Hall Green.
