At the crossroads in Fillongley, turn left onto the Meriden Road, B4102, heading towards Meriden. This will give you a good long climb and then a run down to Meriden. It also goes under the M6, through Birchley Hays Wood and over the A45 on the way to Meriden.

|My first ever planned cycle and I really enjoyed it as I did the route. I will do this one more than once and may do it in the reverse direction too! Many thanks for taking the trouble to map these routes out|
