BRUM 200: the X-Rated Loop

211km cycling event starting from Balsall Common. Controls at Cannock Chase, Ironbridge and Bewdley, plus 3 information controls.

The X-Rated version of a Loop of Birmingham. For experienced randonneurs, only brevet card and validation are included in the entry fee. Car park start, postal finish and 24 hours garage for late finishers.

A surprisingly scenic loop around Birmingham, crossing the five counties (West Midlands, Staffordshire, Shropshire, Worcestershire and Warwickshire) and several beauty spots, including Cannock Chase, the Ironbridge gorge, Wyre forest and the Severn valley. A pleasantly rolling route with a few more undulations in the Shropshire leg. The advised route follows B roads and quiet country lanes, with very little traffic.
