For those of you who like a hill or two then the B5000 from Polsworth to Tamworth will make you happy, as well as a few of the climbs from the Pretty Pigs ( good Pub with gardens and food) and the lakes to the M42 bridge. The route detours through Higham on the hill as it is difficult to cross the A5 at the A444 junction after 16:30. onwards.
