Starting from - Meet at West Haddon Cricket Club NN6 7DJ. There is plenty of parking on the field at the back of the ground. Arrive early so we can leave on time as this new start point adds a little distance to our ride. Don't forget cash for the pub, spare inner tube, helmets and lights (shouldn't need them but for safety). Helmets compulsory. NN6 7DJ, NN6 7BJ

Welcome to our 4th season of Breeze! We are a large and very friendly Group with riders of all abilities. Please don't be nervous if you arrive and find lots of lovely ladies and their bicycles on the cricket ground!

Please arrive in plenty of time to get you and your bike ready as we gather together as a Group for a quick briefing and to do a bike check at approx 6.15pm, before splitting into our riding groups. We will start our skills session at 6.30pm and then be riding our bicycles by 7pm.

The Intermediate Rides for 2020 are aimed around developing cycling skills and focusing on specific techniques to improve your riding, rather than just riding further and further each week to improve your fitness. As a minimum we will aim to get you riding at 11 mph or more, signalling confidently, riding in a group and drinking from a bottle whilst on the move.

The Intermediate Rides have been loaded as a series from April 29th running for 10 weeks with a generic description, however this will be updated each week to include more specific details. You can dip in and out as you see fit and attend one or several rides - you do not have to attend every session.

Neither do you need to wear lycra or ride a fancy bike (although it does need to be road worthy and with pumped up tyres). Wear clothes and shoes that you are comfortable in.  You need to bring with you a helmet, a spare inner tube (that fits your bicycle), a big smile and cash for the pub.  A bottle of water is also a good idea.

You will be riding under the guidance of a British Cycling trained Breeze Champion.

All rides will be on local country lanes, mostly quiet but there will be some undulations. West Haddon is not flat!

Our rides are for all - we ride together at a pace that suits everyone and no one is ever left behind.

We are also a social bunch and always meet in The Crown in West Haddon for a chat and a cup of tea (!!) afterwards.

All that remains to be said is: I can't wait to meet you as we start our Summer Season of riding outside!
