The Breeze Rides aren’t running during the daytime, weekdays, so I'm looking for a way to start riding for fun. I’m not fast on my bike or furious. When going up hills, I give pedestrians that feel good factor – they can go home and boast that they overtook a cyclist. In fact, you’re pretty much guaranteed not to be the slowest in this group! If you’ve not guessed it, for this group, size does not matter and neither does fitness. I can't keep up with my son anymore, so it's time to find others whose goal isn't getting there the quickest! Help choose, gentle local rides that you can do with others. Mums are welcome to bring their little people. The rides will run during the school day. You can also select coffee shop or flask-and-bun stops for our rides. Come and join us. Penny. A word about hills. If like me, you grew up in Sussex-by-the-sea, hills are a bit of a disaster zone. However, they cannot be avoided, no how matter hard you try (and I’ve tried). All of the group rides have hills in them. We take them slowly. Some people just keep going in their lowest gear until they reach the top. Others jump off and walk when they feel the urge to swear. Some people like hills. And that’s OK too. Many of the routes we use are zig-zag – up a bit of hill, then flat, then up some more. It might take a bit longer, but sanity is important. Kids. It’s our aim to develop a series of short rides that go from play park to play park. Cycling with kids around Plymouth can get pretty hairy. However, we hope to refine routes based on the adult group experience, so that come the holidays, we can all pootle off together.
