Starting Point & Postcode
Nene White Water 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.
2 hours 40 mins  (2 hours 0 mins cycling)

Guided Rides Great routes and support from trained leaders


Breeze Bike Rides in Northamptonshire

Heading for Rural Castle Ashby Tearooms along cycle lanes and country roads.

Starting from the Canoe Centre we head into brackmills on cycle lanes & around the pocket park lake coming out at Great Houghton then on country lanes through the Houghton's & Cogenhoe to Castle Ashby. The full map can be found on the Breeze Northampton Facebook page.

It's perfect for those that ride already and looking for someone to ride with or perhaps you'd like some extra training for fitness. We really welcome newcomers to our rides.

It's a good idea to bring some water and you may also want to bring a snack. We will stop in at the tearoom so please bring some money for a hot drink and if the weather is bad a waterproof. If you have one please also bring a puncture repair kit as this is more likely to occur in winter!

This ride is suitable for all bike types as on tarmac.

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.

Any questions please send me an email

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!
