Breeze Challenge Ride

Hi My name is Stephanie Walker and I am the British Cycling Breeze Area Coordinator for West Midlands.  Breeze offer fun, free, organised social bike rides for women led by women all over the country.  We have quite an active group of Champions who are qualified Level one ride leaders who volunteer their time to taking women out on rides in their local area, there is a wide range of rides on offer from beginner’s right through to the more experienced cyclist. Since 2011 breeze has introduced 23000 women into cycling.

 

Why bike rides for women?  to every female cyclist there is three male cyclists.  ‘Closing the gap campaign’ was initiated by British Cycling as there was and still are many barriers to women cycling.  Breeze rides are fun, social and always include a cake stop, no one is left behind.  All the participant requires is a bike in good working order.

 

This year Breeze is running their first Breeze challenge Event 5th October Warwickshire, 50k and 100k. Riders will be supported with feed stations, spectator hot spots and many other surprises along the way, making this a real highlight of the amateur women’s cycling calendar. Both 50km and 100km routes encompass miles of leafy suburbs, winding country roads and peaceful cycle routes. Starting at the Cryfield Pavilion at the University of Warwick Campus, the ride sets off towards Kenilworth Castle, before moving towards Hatton. Riders on the 50km route head towards Rowington, before swinging past Knowle and back to the Warwick University campus, while those taking in the 100km route will head towards Henley-in-Arden, via Snitterfield, before turning back to the start.
