Eight HBC men of diverse ages gathered with their bikes on the morning of Saturday, 22nd June 2019 for a ride in perfect cycling weather, not too warm or too breezy.

First we headed down the traffic-free Greenway from Eign Road, across the new Greenway Bridge to Rotherwas, stopping at Rotherwas Chapel which happened to be open for us to view. Returning the same way, we then cycled on the roads to Mordiford, Dormington and up the long incline to Bartestree, where we turned up to Withington and along the Worcester Road back to Aylestone Hill for lunch at the Swan Inn.
Thus fortified, we tackled Aylestone Hill both up and down, back to HBC, about 12 miles in all. Many thanks to Les D for organising and leading this most enjoyable ride, suitable for all abilities.
