Perhaps you’ve not ridden a bike for a while and you’re looking for a female friendly way to get back in the saddle? Or you fancy a fun way to get your friends riding? This Breeze Ride is about building confidence for all abilities in a relaxed, traffic-free, gentle environment. This traffic-free five mile ride shows off the delights of two of Leicester's many fine parks. Discover the delights of Braunstone Park, with its two lakes, playgrounds, walled garden and Grade II listed Georgian mansion house. The route then leads you into the adjacent Western Park, once part of the ancient Leicester Forest, a former hunting ground for the Earls of Leicester. This beautiful park also features the 'Eco House' - an environmentally-sustainable showhome featuring the latest green technology. What better way to visit it than by bike? As the weather can be changeable at this time of the year it is wise to wear layers and  don't forget your waterproof just in case. Other items to consider bringing along are a drink to keep you hydrated and something to repair a puncture such as a spare inner tube.
