The lull between Christmas and New Year can be an odd cocktail of feeling super motivated while perhaps not having a set aim in mind. And as we tick over into the early days of January, many of us find ourselves looking for a challenge.
If this sounds like you and you need a bit of a steer into 2020, get involved with Breeze Through Winter as a brrrilliant way to join forces with other female riders in your area. Whether you are a regular Breeze rider or completely new to the network, we’re challenging you to take part in four of our popular women-only led rides from 1 January to 29 February to qualify for a limited edition reward.
A huge range of bikes are welcome and all rides are listed with details of the route and pace, making it easy for you to choose what’s suitable. There is also a mix of road and off-road, so you could either try some new terrain or stick to what you know while meeting new riding buddies.
All of the rides are organised by local volunteers, so if you have a great time it’s an easy habit to stick to as groups typically ride a few times a month with a strong social calendar. It’s all free too, so just a matter of finding the time to layer up and get out for a spin.
