Starting Point & Postcode
Nene Whitewater Centre, Bedford Road, Northampton, NN4 7AA.  NN4 7AA
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 Northamptonshire

Staring from the Canoe Centre at Delapre Park we will spin along the cycle lane to Brackmills Pocket Park up alpine climb (-; to Hardingstone then down cycle lane for a ride through Hunsbury Park (downhill Gravel/dirt track) and back along the canal towpath and over the green bridge to Upton Park for a loop, then back along the cycle path to Starbucks at St James returning via Beckets Park. Total 15 miles. Mud warning due to splashes & flooding but all rideable as of 11th! Not suitable for roadie skinny tyres but fine for mtb/hybrid/crosser with some grip.

Please bring a drink and money for coffee cake etc at stop. You are also advised to bring an extra layer and a waterproof.

Wearing a helmet is advisable; if you don’t have one please do not to worry you can still take part.  If you enjoy the bike ride and would like to come again perhaps you could look to buy one then. 

We really welcome newcomers to our rides; we will always ride at the pace of the slowest rider so no one is left behind.

Should you wish to drive to the meet there is parking available.

Look forward to seeing you there.

Meet the Champions

  • Liane Higham Liane Higham Hi, I have been cycling for a few years now and love it, I have completed Sportives in the UK & abroad including Cape Argus, P2P & C2C. I ride a Road Bike & 29'r MTB bike as well as a tourer/crosser for coaching and have a lovely vintage Raleigh. I really love getting more people out on their bikes to have some fun, get fitter & feel great. I qualified as a Breeze Champion May '12 and lead regular rides for a great group & have 'newbies out most weeks! My entry level rides are great for those who own but rarely ride their bikes due to lack of confidence and worries about traffic/fitness etc. Our rides are mainly on cycle paths and country lanes around Northampton & always involve a coffee & cake! I also lead Breeze & Skyrides in Bucks & Beds and last winter offered entry level MTB skills rides with Get_Mtb. My day job is as a cycle coach teaching Bikeability in Northants Schools, I am currently looking at attaining the Go-Ride coaching qualification too. Really looking forward to my Breeze touring/camping holiday again this year as well!
