We’re delighted to announce that we’ve partnered with the British Heart Foundation for the Big Breeze Bike Ride. Working alongside the British Heart Foundation, we’ll encourage even more women to have fun on bikes and raise vital funds for this amazing cause.
Women and heart disease
It's an enduring myth that heart disease affects men more than women, but the truth is Coronary Heart Disease (CHD) is the single most common cause of death for women in the UK – affecting three times more women than breast cancer. Help us raise awareness by telling your friends about women and heart disease.
Your Big Breeze Bike Ride
To join in the Big Breeze Bike Ride and keep your heart healthy, just plan your own informal bike ride with friends or family. Whether it’s a picnic ride, a cafe ride, a fancy dress ride or a chance-to-chat ride, just get the bikes out and enjoy. British Cycling's Breeze network is helping more women have fun on bikes so why not swap your usual walk and get together for a fantastic social bike ride instead? It’s a great way to get active, socialise with friends and raise money for the BHF.
If you want to join in the celebration, go to our Big Breeze Bike Ride Facebook App.
