20 September 2012
Breeze in the Park is on Sunday 23 September. Join us as we ride bikes, eat cakes and have fun in these great parks.....
This summer has been the most significant and game-changing time for women’s cycling and we think it's just incredible. So we’re inviting you all to Breeze in the Park. We'll be encouraging women to take to their bikes with friends and children and celebrate the success of our GB cyclists.
Things have come a long way since the first Olympic Games in 1896, when all the competitors were men! With over 4,800 female competitors taking part and more medal opportunities for women than ever before, this has been the most decorated Olympics for women by far. The London 2012 Paralympic Games also sees a record number of women competing in what can only be described as the biggest summer of cycling the UK has ever seen.
Natalie Justice, Women’s Network Manager for British Cycling said:
‘London 2012 blew us away and will forever go down in history as the Women’s Games. This is an extraordinary and unprecedented time for us and it deserves a celebration. We want every single woman out there who has been inspired to bring their bike and kids along to the parks and join us for a special Breeze bike ride.’
Each activity will have its own format so take a sneaky peak of what’s in store by clicking on the relevant location. Turning up on the day is fine, but we’d love you to tell us you’re coming by registering today. For those for you unable to attend your nearest event, do keep a look out for other smaller scale Breeze in the Park activities on Sunday 23 September which will be popping up in our Ride Finder all the time. Some of our fabulous Breeze champions have already uploaded celebratory Breeze bike rides in: Leeds, Sheffield, Gateshead, Newcastle, Devon, Weymouth, Exeter.
If you're lucky enough to live around the Warwickshire area, we're part of Cycletta on Sunday 23 September, so please come along and say hello.
