Attingham Park car assist

Ducklings [J.Atherton]
Car assist [Kahr uh-sist] noun employing the use of automobiles to help the cyclist reach a different part of the country, in order to explore further afield, and find more cake.

Gill C writes:

"Richard and I met up with the others at Colemere Country Park. Martin's ride was about 45 miles and virtually all downhill - I have no idea how that is possible, but great after a late Saturday night! 

We had morning coffee in Shawbury and then across to the National Trust property, Attingham Park, where as a bonus you got free entry as a cyclist.

After a longer than usual lunch stop so we could take in a little of what Attingham Park had to offer we set off on the return journey with stunning views over the rolling countryside of Shropshire. The only real incline of the day was up to Clive with a beautiful church at the top of the hill.

A short ride then to The Tilley Raven where we sat outside as we had managed all day and even managed to talk some politics! A short hop then back to Colemere.

Richard and I had never been in this area before but thanks to Martins introduction we will go back."
