Cycling trail 7 is a circuit around SW Birmingham, using existing cycle trails where possible, taking in many of the most iconic glacial erratic boulders in the area.

This is a suggested loop around the south-west Birmingham route, which is along dedicated cycle routes wherever possible.  The western part of the route is hilly.  More details about getting to the trail and accessibility along it will be available prior to the launch.
