Women only Breeze Rides are all about fun, friendly, informal bike rides led by women, for women. They're ideal for all abilities and are great for building confidence and getting some gentle exercise. You might not have ridden a bike for a while and be looking for the easiest way to get back in the saddle, or be looking for a sociable way of getting out and about in your local area. Breeze rides are gently-paced, not too long, and often take in a stop for coffee or a cake. Kids are welcome to come along too.

- Overall Duration On a long ride, it’s sometimes good to have a little break in the middle, or maybe a catch up at the beginning or end to keep it sociable. This means that the overall ride duration may be longer than the actual cycling time.

Breeze Bike Rides in Allerdale
This will be an introduction to mountain bike night riding. We will ride the 'blue' Quercus trail at Whinlatter.
The route is an excellent trail with very little technicality to experience riding through the forest in the dark. This route is guaranteed to leave you with a smile on your face!
The ride will be delivered to build confidence from start to finish.
Participants will be able to ride the sections at their own pace but the group will stay together throughout the ride.
You will need a mountain bike for this ride - these can be hired from the trail centre (£22.50 from www.cyclewise.co.uk).
Mountain bike lights are also needed - there are 15 sets available for riders to borrow, booked on a first come first served basis. To book a set of lights please email HLAitch@btinternet.com
Look forward to seeing you there!
