Breeze Through Winter - Taking part in this ride will count as one of the 4 rides required to receive some Breeze goodies!!

Starting off in the pretty village of Mells, we'll follow country roads to Kilver Court shopping outlet in Shepton Mallet and stop at the cafe, where the Rapha store have kindly offered to put a bit of money behind the till for us. There'll be a chance to browse in the Rapha Archive Store and they will post any purchases if you're tempted by their cycling kit so you don't have to carry it back with you. We'll then cycle back to Mells on country roads. The route does have some climbing at the beginning with one short steep section and then there's a climb back up out of Shepton Mallet then it's pretty much down hill back to the start point. We'll take the hills at our own pace and regroup at the top, so don't worry no one is left behind.

I'd recommend bringing some money for the cafe as Rapha's contribution may not cover all of our tea and cake! Helmets are and advised and a spare inner tube in case of punctures.

If you have any old inner tubes lying around, please bring them along as the Rapha store is a collection point for the Cycle of Good charity. The old inner tubes are sent to Malawi where they are turned into quality handcrafted goods. Cycle of Good train tailors in the world’s poorest places so they can earn a decent living and support their families. So your old tubes go to a good cause and you can help the environment by not chucking them away. It's a win win and that’s why it’s called the Cycle of Good!
