International Women's Day is a global day celebrating the economic, political and social achievements of women past, present and future. Suffragettes campaigned for women's right to vote. The word 'Suffragette' is derived from the word "suffrage" meaning the right to vote. International Women's Day honours the work of the Suffragettes, celebrates women's success, and reminds of inequities still to be redressed. Why not join us for a Breeze ride to celebrate the success of women’s cycling! Fun, free and friendly bikes rides for women! Fresh air, exercise and fun guaranteed! Join us for this 9 mile ride along the Canal and River Ribble. We’ll meet at the bike compound between Harrington and Greenbank building for a quick bike check and warm up. Our route will include the beautiful Haslam Park, Ashton Park and the Guild Wheel.  There’ll be a mixture of cycle paths and quiet roads. You might like to bring bread for the ducks at Haslam Park. This ride is perfect for all abilities and we’ll always ride at the pace of the slowest rider so no one is left behind. We are a friendly bunch and really welcome newcomers to our rides.  It's a good idea to bring some water and you may also want to bring a snack.  Wearing a helmet is advisable; if you don’t have one please do not to worry you can still take part.  If you enjoy the bike ride and would like to come again perhaps you could look to buy one then.  We may get chance to stop so please bring some money for refreshments.
