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 Newark and Sherwood

We'll meet at the car park opposite Southwell Minster - please note this is a pay & display carpark. We'll ride through the town centre and make our way off along Halam Road and out of town, climbing our first hill as we head for Halam.

Progressing through Halam, and turning into and through Kirklington, we'll then head up to the village of Eakring. On the way, we'll complete a Category 5 climb (200 ft in 1 mile) which will get our blood pumping and the Christmas calories burning!

From Eakring, a gently undulating route will take us towards Caunton, where we'll ride a short stretch of the A616 before turning back towards Southwell, making time to stop off at Newfield Dairy & Ice-cream Parlour at Hockerton Heights. We'll enjoy a hot chocolate or a home-made ice cream, or if we're being good, a Green Tea or Earl Grey, as we watch the pedigree herd of Holstein cows graze in the fields next to the Parlour. We'll then ride back down to Southwell.

This ride is around 18 miles in total with a steep hill climb, so you'll need to be confident to ride uphill with your gears and stand up out of the saddle for the steepest sections. A road bike or hybrid would suit this course best as we'll ride at a brisk pace.

Although we are riding mainly on quiet country roads, this is nevertheless a road-ride all the way, so you'll need to be stable and confident on your bike as this route is not traffic-free.

It's a good idea to bring some water and you may also want to bring a snack if you think your energy levels may need topping up along the way.  Wearing a helmet is advisable. Please bring some money if you want to buy refreshments.

Looking forward to seeing you there!

    Louise Righton Hi, I'm Louise, your Breeze ride leader for Southwell and surrounding Notts villages. I love riding my bike but am too slow to ride with my husband and his mates, so am looking for some ladies to ride with socially at weekends! I hope you'll join me to pedal and chat, stop for coffee or a picnic, and maybe gain some fitness and friends along the way! Looking forward to riding with you.
