The 3Cyclists around Coventry 35

Up in Leamington today and met up with Mick and Graham on the Greenway at Kenilworth.  This is Mick's home territory and he took us around the leafy lanes of Warwickshire.  A chilly start to the day but it warmed up nicely at the end.

Berkswell Tea Room

Actually the ride was in two halves, one getting to and from the meeting place and the main ride was around Balsall Common, Canley and Warwick University.  The tea stop was at the village store/tea rooms in the centre of the village of Berkeswell.  Quaint old place which takes you back forty years.  The owner, a nice old boy (that's rich coming from us), took the below photo showing Grahm handing me the 'token'; my turn to fork to for refreshments next time.  Note the china cups and saucers, very swish.

The Red Rocket

The University was an eyeopener.  Not having been round here for three years or more there has been so much building going on it was difficult for Graham and I to get our bearings and find our way around.  We pleaded with him not to leave us alone we would never find our way out!  Nice cafe has also appeared, the Red Rocket.  Cash not accepted, cards only, the way we are going I suppose.

Left Mick a short time after this  and cycled back to Leamington.  Covered 35 miles today.
