June 22nd - Up on the Chase on a lazy, hot summer afternoon. Gorgeous - I haven’t been here for too long, if I’m honest. A great ride down Rainbow Hill, the trails are dry, powdery and challenging, over to Birches Valley where the cafe and it’s pice list has been refurbished, then up Penkridge Bank, Abraham’s Valley, over to Stepping Stones, Milford, back through Shugborouagh and on the canal to Rugeley.
A great ride. I’d love to know what’s under that manhole near Brocton Coppice - guess it must be a well or borehole - there certainly aren’t and drains around there… and they really don’t seem to want folk getting in, either.
