Bromsgrove, Catshill, Housmans clock circular

Starting Point & Postcode
St Godwalds Church Car Park (near Bromsrove Station)  B60 2EA
Overall Duration On a long ride, it’s sometimes good to have a little break in the middle, or maybe a catch up at the beginning or end to keep it sociable. This means that the overall ride duration may be longer than the actual cycling time.
1 hours 40 mins  (1 hours 30 mins cycling)

Guided Rides Great routes and support from trained leaders


Breeze Bike Rides in Bromsgrove

Follow SUSTRANS route 5 through Bromsgrove towards Catshill, a gentle ride with an opportunity to negotiate a short section of town traffic with guidance.  

This gentle ride is perfect for beginners and anyone who’s not been on a bike for a while. We really welcome newcomers to our rides; we will always ride at the pace of the slowest rider so no one is left behind.

Full distance 9.6 miles, some hills, but not bad; Shorter version approx 7 miles.

Meet at St. Godwalds church hall (on SUSTRANS route 5) and make our way via Fordhouse Rd and Windsor St to the top of Bromsgrove High Street. Through Sidemoor continue on the no.5 SUSTRANS cycle route to Perryfields and onto Stourbridge Road. Turning off at Rocky Lane, we will follow the lanes back into Bromsgrove. At Housmans clock tower there is a choice, we can cut it short if weather is bad, time short or too tired and sweep down past Bumble Hole to cross the motorway and come back via Sidemoor and Sanders Park OR Do the whole route via Bungay Lake and Timberhonger Lanes to Sanders Park, then back along Charford Rd to Aston Fields.

It would be good to bring a drink and banana or other snack; wear a helmet if possible and if you’ve got a hi-vis vest it would be good though I’ve got a couple to lend.

Look forward to seeing you there!

Meet the Champions

  • Janet Steel
    Janet Steel Hello, I didn't get on a bike until in my twenties and then started using one to go a short journey to work, I started exploring Sustrans routes with a friend and eventually joined a cycling club which is a great way to meet people and explore the countryside as well as improve as a cyclist. I now enjoy teaching bikeability and encouraging anyone to get going on their bike.
  • Catherine Maguire
    Catherine Maguire I'm an oldie, technologically challenged but still cycling having used a bike all my life for shopping, carrying children and general transport. Not interested in racing at all, but keen to get more women and girls out on bikes as a means of empowerment and to help cut fossil fuel use. I'm also keen to extend areas cycled by combining bike and train, and to campaign for better bike provision on trains.
