What’s a nice ride from Brum?

Oh where do I even begin with this one ? Stratford upon Avon, the Malvern Hills, Henley in Arden to Warwick , Burton Dassett , Edge Hill , take your pick . I live in South West Coventry so I do a lot of riding in that area too . One thing I can say with certainty is avoid Coventry . The only good thing I have to say about it is that there are roads leading away from it in all directions .

There's a couple of nearby bike meets on a Wednesday . Hoar Park between Daw Mill and Nuneaton and Riverside, Stratford upon Avon. EDIT: just looked at the Hoar Park one online and it's on Wednesday mornings ! Must be aimed at retirees then .

The Hoar Park meet is quite an experience as long as the weather is right.

Nick named the ‘Cinderella club’ coz everyone f*cks off around 12:00

You will see all sorts of old and rare machinery plus modern & custom stuff.

[mention]fastbob[/mention] is quite correct in that it’s mostly frequented by retirees, those on split shifts, holiday & sickies.

I’ve been there quite a few times this year ( retired )

There’s a cafe & coffee shop.

If your in the mood to talk Bollox about all bike related stuff this is it.

Really friendly no dicking about.

Oh , just remembered ! The big thing at the moment is Caffeine and Machine on the road out of Stratford just before the Ettington roundabout . It's basically a pub and restaurant trying to cash in on people who don't drink and drive .

Bugatti owners club, about an hour ride out, even better if there is a hill climb on, some lovely little villages and country roads.

 

I can't quite figure out what you mean , please enlighten .

Another one , a few bikers at a loose end often meet up at Bikers World near Coleshill . There's a good tea and hot batches ( Cobs to you James ) shed in the carpark. Good place to assemble if you're going up to Matlock in Derbyshire which is a bike Mecca at the weekends ( Great fish and chips ) But I don't know how much you already know . Are you new to the area or new to biking ?

Pretty much new to both @fastbob been in Brum and riding for about fourteen months but only passed my full A a few weeks ago. Riding for pleasure didn’t work for me on my 125.


Thanks for all the advice

 

I'd gladly show you around the area but you would soon get bored following a Harley 😁

Right oh , I'm off to Cheltenham next weekend for a Harley open day . Did you know Bugatti made an aeroplane ? Now that's worth a Google .
