One of the largest urban parks in Europe, Sutton Park is an oasis of tranquillity in the West Midlands conurbation. Our 6 mile circuit was Cat 3 but there are many paths suitable for smaller scooters. A great time was had splashing through the fords and climbing the muddy banks through the woods before lunch near the Bistro. Then to the western side of the park with wide open views over the heathland with skylarks singing. Many thanks to local member Jane for showing us the route.
Cat 2+ Ford! 6 miles. From Rifle Range Corner car park, down Pepper Slade and through the ford where two scooters needed a push on the loose gravel bottom. Up to the Glacial Bolder for coffee. Then along the old railway before turning sharp right to the Stepping Stones for lunch with. Another opportunity to play in a ford. Up the Sher Brook Valley, across the ford again and back up Pepper Slade. Back at the cars and packed away just before heavy rain started. A nice start to the season.
