New Breeze champion training courses announced

Breeze champions

Last year, British Cycling's Breeze network trained nearly 450 wonderful champions across England to lead rides and help more women get back on their bikes. But they're not stopping there – dates have just been announced for new courses.

The network was set up last year to try and close the cycling gap – currently there are three times more men than women riding bikes for fun. Breeze champions help other women to enjoy the fresh air and freedom offered by bike rides.

To become a champion, women attend a one day course to learn more about the Breeze network, how to lead a bike ride, and pick up some good practice tips. 

As well as free national governing body training, champions receive kit and ongoing support. In return they promote the Breeze network and deliver around 14 rides a year.
