NN6 7AN

Welcome to our 5th season of Breeze! We are a large and very friendly Group with riders of all abilities but everyone started in Beginners once upon a time!

Due to the restrictions imposed by British Cycling and Government advice on social distancing, we are limited to 8 riders only - so 6 participants plus myself and an assistant. Commitment, or adequate notice of withdrawal is vital! We are all trying to work out what a Breeze Ride will look like in reality.

Breeze will meet at West Haddon Village Hall, NN6 7AN. There is adequate off-road parking but please park considerately as this is a residential area and neighbours to the ladies who live in the village.

Please arrive in plenty of time to get you and your bike ready as we will gather for a quick briefing and to do a bike check at approx 6.15pm. We will start riding our bicycles at 6.30pm.

You do not need to wear lycra or ride a fancy bike (although it does need to be road worthy and with pumped up tyres). Wear clothes and shoes that you are comfortable in. You need to bring with you a helmet, a spare inner tube (that fits your bicycle), a big smile and lights (for safety) if you have them. A bottle of water is also a good idea.

Our rides are for all - we ride together at a pace that suits everyone and no one is ever left behind. We will pause to catch our breath as needed.

The Beginners Rides for 2021 have been loaded as a series from April 21st through to September 15th with a generic description, however the routes and distances will change/ lengthen as we gain the light through the summer and everyone's confidence grows.

You will be riding under the guidance of a British Cycling trained Breeze Champion.

All rides will be on local country lanes, mostly quiet but there will be some undulations. West Haddon is not flat!

Unfortunately we will not be able to socialise for very long after the ride. At this point in time I do not propose a pub stop, which we would most definitely include in "normal" times.

All that remains to be said is: I can't wait to meet you as we start our Summer Season of riding outside!

Who else is on this ride?
