Cheers for that and to everyone else who's replied.

There is a track from along side the small river at the bottom of Pype Hayes Park that goes all the way through the New Hall Valley to Sutton Coldfield which is completely flat.

You do have to cross a couple of roads along the way but they all have pedestrian crossings.

It's a lovely walk / cycle to be honest. On bikes, depending on how quickly you want to do it I would say its a good 30/40 mins each way.

Depending on how far you want to venture Tittington trail in Derbyshire is again an old disused railway you can even hire bikes there and lots of stops along the trail so as long or short as you want it really, highly recommend.

I broke one of my early cans of lager records in Beacon Park when I was 14/15. Was pretty momentous.
Promoted again.

Think that’s plantsbrook that runs through the newhall valley.

Not sure about how far you want to go but Cannock Chase visitor centre has some good flattish trails that might suit you and the kids? If you park at Birches valley visitor centre there is a cafe, go ape, a hunt the gruffalo trail and a play park right by the car park, there are also really nice big wide trails that do a figure of 8 around the fishing lakes (green route) which is fairly flat too mate. Always plenty going on there in the summer (though the outdoor concerts have stopped now of course) πŸ˜•

Crackley Wood just outside Kenilworth. CV8 2JS

There is a flat circular path around the nature reserve and the kids can look out for butterflies, bats etc. and there is a brass rubbing trail for the kids.

I regularly cycle 20k around Sutton park and surrounding roads can be busy at weekends. Nothing to difficult.

Tissington Trail is great but, there is a uphill gradient all the way up, not steep but constant. If you can get somebody to drop you at the top and come down, it’s a good idea
What did the Knights in White satin?

Sandwell Valley Park is a good shout. Great play area and park for the kids, head over the bridge and there are paved walking and cycling routes around the lake. A bit of off road trail type stuff as well.
