This just in from University of Warwick Estates. This is not my usual route to get to work, but for those that travel the route on a regular basis, be careful out there.
Attacks reported on Kenilworth Cycle Route
If you cycle or walk from Kenilworth to campus, take care – we’ve had reports of a group attacking people in the area and stealing money. We’ve reported the attacks to the local Police force and requested them to increase patrols in that area, and we’ll pass on any new information as soon as we have it.
The daily commute is about 8-9 miles one way, depending on the route I chose. Below are some impressions in chronological order. Beautiful ride on a beautiful coolish fall day, with a lot less cars than is usually the case.
For those interested in the route, see below (because of a quirk in Google Maps in the Stoneleigh Abbey area, I can not draw a contiguous route):
