A 5 mile traffic-free cycle route between Elmdon and Meriden Parks in Solihull, passing through Sheldon Country Park in Birmingham. 3Parks is being promoted by Cyclesolihull to encourage more cycling in and around Solihull
If you live in the West Midlands and like traffic-free cycling there is no need to travel vast distances to one of the well known national trails. There are a growing number of routes locally and the latest, the 3Parks Cycle Route, is real a gem - five miles of traffic-free route connecting three parks in Solihull and Birmingham which contain a host of attractions.
Children love a cycle ride and free from traffic you can all relax and enjoy the trip. To keep the kids happy there are three playgrounds to explore along the route as well as a farm and a cafe for that much welcome drink and ice cream.
There is also a lot for those interested in history and wildlife, plus possibly the best location to watch aircraft in the UK!
