David attended this event – a “rail-assisted” ride – and writes:
I was the first to arrive at Tile Hill Station followed by Rowen, Brian and John. We awaited the arrival of Iain who came by car before setting off to Balsall Common for a snack. We were shortly joined by Philip who had cycled the 48 miles from Northampton.
At Stratford the roads were busy but we managed the one way system using the pavements to get to the High Street. Here we passed lots of tourists to get to a cafe which had a cycle rack within view.
The return leg saw the departure of Philip at Wellesbourn (he cycled back to Northampton) and Brian a bit further on (he cycled into Coventry to catch a early train).
The rest of us stopped at Kenilworth Castle to view the ruins before arriving back at Tile Hill.
