[Photo credit: Dabbling Duck café, Shere] Breeze women's road cycling 30-65+ miles. We ride for fun!!! Our rides are for the more experienced and faster Breeze road cyclist whose speed averages 21-23kph/13-14.5mph over 60-105k/30-65miles of gently rolling roads; slightly less on hilly rides, possibly more on flat rides, enjoying, not rushing. We ride on road bikes, and in clip-in pedals; and use pleasant, quiet and scenic roads as far as possible. These include the occasional road bike friendly traffic-free cycle path. We ride in small groups of 8-10; strive to be neat and tidy in our riding, and to make a second nature of good road cycling skills and etiquette ... all without being overly rigid! We ride at pace of the slowest, tackle hills and descents at own pace, re-group at junctions / top & bottom of hills, have unrushed coffee breaks and leave no one behind. Should a ride be noticeably unsuitable, the Breeze Champion/s shall aim to gently invite a rider to leave the ride at a safe point (eg a train station) and to join us on our sister Little Lanes Breeze rides for the timebeing (2 sub-groups: Steady 10-11.5mph/ 16-18.5kph, and Challenging 18-20kph/ 11-12.5mph); these are also open to non-road bikes eg xc, road/gravel, Bromptons, touring, hybrids etc. Over the summer, we like to go on bike-&-train mini adventures. In the winter months, we may use trains to help us make the most of the short days. Our usual meeting point is The Pheasantry Café in Bushy Park where coffee/loo’s are available from 8:30/9am (summer/winter), there is a free car park and Teddington station (frequent London Waterloo trains) half a mile away. www.letsride.co.uk/groups/ponytails-curves.

For slower and/or more scenic rides, on/off-road bikes, and/or non clip-in pedals of a similar ilk, join our sister Little Lanes Breeze rides (Steady 10-11.5mph/ 16-18.5kph and Challenging 18-20kph/11-12.5mph over the distance) here: www.letsride.co.uk/groups/richmond-upon-thames-breeze
