Birmingham Snow Hill to Kidderminster (42.43km; 549m ascent)
The final section, between Birmingham Snow Hill and Kidderminster, is largely as easy as the approach from the east. It is only beyond Lye that minor ascents come into play, and the only appreciable climbs (still very short) are on the last stage between Blakedown and Kidderminster.
The departure from central Birmingham is full of fascinating remnants of the industrial heritage of the city; beyond Smethwick, the tone becomes more suburban, and is much more rural beyond Stourbridge.
All sections in this group await final checks, after which the directions will be published for those so checked.
