For this session a mountain bike is fine, but with the nights beginning to draw in lights are essential. A cycle helmet is, of course, also a requirement.
The location is chosen so that it should be possible to cycle there (Coombe Abbey is ~5 miles from the city centre). There is a fairly direct & reasonable route there along the Binley road/Brinklow road (the cycle directions at maps.google.co.uk
can be useful).
With the winter now approaching, the session on 28th August will be the last one to be taking place at Coombe Abbey until the spring. All of our other sessions take place closer towards the city centre (usually War Memorial Park/King Henry VIII)
I don't think it is possible for Alex to do running at Coombe Abbey Park as I go no access to park either public transport or car, even a mountain bike as I haven't got any racing bike yet.
So what is your recommendation for this to be resolve?
