Meet by the recycling bins in the car park at Macknade Fine Foods, Faversham,
This is the first ride in a series of 4 free rides organised specifically for women who, for whatever reason want to get back on their bikes.... Maybe you have lost your confidence, haven't ridden for a while, feel vulnerable on your own, want to fulfil a New Year's resolution....
All you need is basic cycling ability and a bike - it does not have to be a 'road' bike - just a bike that is comfortable for you and is in a roadworthy condition e.g. tyres, brakes and gears all in working order. A cycle helmet is strongly recommended but otherwise no special clothing is required - just practical and comfortable!
These are friendly, social [chatty!] rides, led by Breeze Champions who are trained as level 1 or level 2 ride leaders by British Cycling. They are volunteers and hold current first aid certificates. The pace is set by the slowest rider and we can get off and walk up any hills [and often do!]. Coffee/tea/cake/brunch stops are always a feature on Breeze Rides and this series is no exception!
Please join us on any ride[s] that suit you OR join us for all 4! We are realy looking forward to heping you get back on your bike and enjoying cycling.......
