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 Manchester

Breeze Challenge Ride for Women If you've been riding a road bike for a while, and perhaps been thinking about joining a cycling club, these rides – brand new for 2012 – are for you. The prospect of a speedy pace over 25 - 40 miles, and the strong likelihood of some hills thrown in along the way, means our Ride Strong Plus rides are not for the faint-hearted.

Join us for a ladies only ride starting from the car park opposite Hockery Brook Inn, Hindley. Approximately over a 1040 ft of total ascent, taking in the breath taking views as you enter Lancashire countryside. This ride is approximately 27 miles in total and geared up for road bikes, hybrids or bikes with road tyres. The route takes you through Wigan on main roads, cycle lanes and minor roads with a busy section through the town centre. A rest stop is needed can be taken at Heskin Hall as we travel through the country roads. Helmets are advised to be worn during the ride and also wear suitable clothing taking account of the weather. It's advisable to bring along an inner tube just in case of punctures as it isn't always easy to fix on the trail with a puncture repair kit.

There will be an opportunity to buy a drink and snack at the cafe so please bring some money along if you wish to use the cafe.

Please log on and register on the ride to secure a place

Any questions contact Sandra via email:

Meet the Champions

    Sandra Green Hi I am Sandra Green, I have been riding for a few years on a mountain bike but have always found myself tagging along with guy groups. I have also branched out in to road riding having completed my first sportive late in 2012 and like to combine the two. This is my third year as a Sky Ride Leader and I really enjoy meeting new people, trying different routes and getting out with like minded people on a bike. I have also been running Ladies Only Breeze rides in Wigan for almost four years having led over 200 rides and I am always keen to get more ladies out on a bike, enjoying the social aspect as well as getting fit and meeting new friends. If you would like more information on our ladies (and children) rides with Breeze Wigan email me: Follow on twitter and Instagram : @breezewigan or Facebook:

    Louise Head Just over a year ago I was looking to join a cycling group. I saw the TV advertisement for sky rides - where will your bike take you? I joined in and throughly enjoyed the rides. I was introduced to Breeze rides by a skyride leader - since then I've never looked back, fun, friendship and fitness. The rides have been so much fun. I've met so many lovely people and my fitness has definitely improved! With a bit of gentle persuasion from Breeze Champion Sandra, I have trained as a Champion and I'm looking forward to meeting you and riding alongside. That's where my bike took me. Hope your bike takes you to one of our Breeze rides.
