Be a Breeze Champion and inspire other women to ride

Want to inspire more women to ride? HSBC UK Breeze needs you!

If you’re a confident female cyclist and want to encourage other women to cycle for fun and fitness, there’s no better time to become a volunteer Breeze Champion.

Breeze is the biggest programme ever to get more women riding bikes in the UK. Led by women for women, Breeze relies on a group of volunteer ride leaders, known as Breeze Champions, to support other women on guided bike rides across the UK. Breeze empowers women to change the face of cycling for good and leave a lasting legacy in their area.

With over 2,000 Breeze Champions trained to date, you’ll be joining a network of inspirational, like-minded women. Here’s a taste of what becoming a Breeze Champions involves:

The assessed one-day course qualifies you to deliver guided bike rides for groups of beginner and intermediate level adults and accompanied children on roads and cycle paths. We’ll also provide you with exclusive Breeze Champion kit, British Cycling Ride membership and on-going support to help you on your way.

Please note: places are limited. All completed applications will be submitted for review and you’ll be notified by email if you have a place on the course. Please only apply if you live in the area where the course is being held, or are willing to lead rides in that area.
