Welcome to our 4th season of Breeze! We are a large and very friendly Group with riders of all abilities but everyone started in Beginners once upon a time!
Due to restrictions by British Cycling on insurance and Government advice, we are only allowed groups of 6 maximum, so 5 participants only. Commitment to the ride, or adequate notice of withdrawal is vital! We are all trying to work out what a Breeze Ride will look like in reality.
Our Breeze group is affiliated with West Haddon Hurricanes, a newly formed, women only cycling club. To aid social distancing, the Hurricanes ride will begin from a separate starting point.
Breeze will meet at West Haddon Village Hall, NN6 7AN. There is free parking off-road but please park considerately as this is a residential area and neighbours of many of our members who reside in West Haddon.
Please arrive in plenty of time to get you and your bike ready as we will gather together for a quick briefing and to do a bike check at approx 6.15pm.. We will start riding our bicycles at 6.30pm.
You do not 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.
Our rides are for all - we ride together at a pace that suits everyone and no one is ever left behind. We will pause to catch our breath as needed.
The Beginners Rides for 2020 have been loaded as a series from April 29th through to September 16th with a generic description, however the routes and distances will change/ lengthen as we gain the light through the summer and everyone's confidence grows.
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!
All that remains to be said is: I can't wait to meet you as we start our Summer Season of riding outside!
