as i saw the price of the transport is so expensive i'm wondering if i can cycle all around the city i.e. from westbourne to centre etc...
If you're brave enough to dodge the busses and trucks on the A38, then I don't see why not.
I cycle from the bull ring to erdington after my part-time job via the a38, and as long as you are confident and careful you will get on fine.
It can get busy at times but as long as you are confident and are well prepared you will be fine.
Or indeed the Queensway tunnels must be a bit tough too.
I go from Gravelly Hill down Slade road to the roundabout under Spaghetti junction. through Aston under the train station and meet again at the roundabout where the expressway starts.
The worst bit are the big roundabouts between the A38 motorway and aston uni.
You should try looking into canal paths though. I'm gonna try jumping on the canal path under spaghetti junction next time, which should hopefully take me out next to the uni
