Starting from - Porteur cafe, 210 Church Road, Hove (BN3 2DJ)

There is lots of safe bike storage inside at the back of the cafe - bring your bike in whilst you wait. There's even a track pump in the bike storage area so that you can check your tyre pressure before we set off.

Kelly runs the cafe and can offer you excellent coffee (roasted locally in Hove), a range of teas, or some freshly baked cake to fuel your ride.

Paul runs the bike workshop and can look at your bike if it's not running smoothly, or advise you on simple maintenance. BN3 2DJ

Breeze Brighton & Hove has partnered with Brighton & Hove Triathlon to bring you a series of monthly training rides. This is the third in the series (first one on 9th June).

If you fancy giving Triathlon a go, but are nervous about the cycling part, then this Breeze ride is for you! We will take you on a flat seafront ride from Hove to Shoreham, giving you hints and tips along the way. After a short pause in Shoreham (no time for coffee … this is a training ride after all!) we will turn around and come back again. We can always chat over a re-fuelling coffee and cake when we get back to the start at Porteur café in Hove.

Whilst there are no hills to contend with on this ride, the wind can make the ride tough in one direction (but speedy and easy the other way!). This replicates the conditions and terrain of the Brighton & Hove Triathlon (Sunday 16th September).

PLEASE NOTE: as this is a group ride, we will NOT be using Tri-bars on bikes. ANY type of bike is welcome, but if you’ve got a specific Tri-bike, then you’re probably beyond needing this level of confidence and skill building ride!

Remember to check your bike before setting out for the ride:
- are both tyres fully inflated?
- do both brakes work well?
- is the chain clean and lightly oiled?
