I'll be spending next week working and staying in Edgbaston near Birmingham.
I will be taking the bike, and would appreciate any recommendations for 2 hour loops from that area.

Thanks

Not used them myself but looks interesting, might be of some use to you.

That's where I grew up! and know the roads like the back of my hand, mainly from cycling. Not sure what to suggest in the way of a loop though, depends on what you would want to see. I guess I am too blessed with countryside and hills these days. Brings back happy memories of being a kid cycling out to the international airport and watching Concorde fly in and out (on special occasions) and cycling to THE football ground in town

Hope you enjoy it. It is quite diverse from the "leafy EdgBARston" (sic) to the red-light district. erm. apparently.

You didn't ride the No.11 route then....?? Start at Selly Oak Park, go round via Handsworth, Perry Barr, past the Villa ground, Erdington, Fox and Goose, Swan, Westley Arms, Cadbury World and finish at the new Queen Elizabeth Hospital.... The nurses in A&E like undressing injured cyclists.
