Special Rides

Special Rides are occasional Cyclesolihull rides which are ...well... special in some way! They may be at a non-standard time or be longer, have a different starting point and visit some new places.

Sunday 31 August at 9.30 am from Coleshill (Parkfield Rd car park) B46 3ND A 50 mile Special Ride.

A challenging ride to Lichfield via Kingsbury Water Park, Middleton and Shenstone, returning via Lower Stonal, Little Aston and Sutton Park. There will be a lunch stop at Lichfield and possibly a scond stop in Sutton Park.

Please note this is an additional all-day special ride and not in the published programme. It will be similar to a Saturday Stretcher ride.

Cyclesolihull rides go ahead unless there is persistant heavy rain (not just showers), very strong winds, snow or ice. Rides are rarely cancelled (5 in 2010 due to snow and ice) but if we feel this is necessary because forecast bad weather we will try and put information about this on the website before the start of the ride.


Try Cyclesolihull's other rides:

Sunday Cycle Rides take place most Sundays at 2 pm during the spring and summer. They are between 5 and 20 miles long, depending on which of the Cyclesolihull routes is being cycled.

Some of these rides are Taster Rides, monthly rides of about 5 miles long. They start at 2 pm and there is a refreshment stop. These rides are an ideal introduction to Cyclesolihull rides for new cyclists and families with children. They are just like the other rides but much shorter!

Evening Explorer rides are on alternate Wednesdays from mid-May to early August. They start at 7 pm from various locations and are about 10 miles long, following the shorter 'S' routes. There is a pub refreshment stop of about 30 minutes and the ride will finish before 9 pm.

Saturday Stretcher rides are the longest Cyclesolihull rides at between 20 and 30 miles. There is no fixed route and they may use sections of busier roads. They are not suitable for small children.
