Tuesday towpath trundle...

After yesterday's hill fest I decided to do a flatter route so I pedalled into Selly Oak on my Ridgback commuter and cycled along the cut to Hawksley, then went to Alvechurch and back along the canal to Hopwood so I could do Bittell Reservoir and Cofton Hacket to home.

Me wifey and the hounds are doing a walk over the back of the Dodford later on this morning, followed by a nice pub lunch! Suits me!

I thought I'd share this website I read about in Cycling Plus -

As food got me here in the first place a website dedicated to food and cyclists seems like a good idea.


  1. I can't wait until those locations mean something to me. We will ride together, my man.

    Wow, this is so coincidental....I just discovered the hungry cyclist myself the other day. He's got a great site.


  2. Sorry I've not been round much - have been "busy" ;o)

    That site looks good and apt for most of us - I'm always hungry.

    1,280ft is still a good climb over 20 miles - unless they where tiny little hills.
