Saturday 19th January at 10.30am This is what time the ride will set off. It’s best to get to the starting point at least 15 minutes beforehand to avoid missing the start.

Starting Point & Postcode
At the top end of Main Street at the junction with Barrowby Lane, Garforth  LS25 1QD
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 0 mins  (1 hours 30 mins cycling)

Breeze Bike Rides in Leeds

This is a mainly off road ride for all types of bike on good tracks so mud is not an issue in these winter months. Total ride distance is approx. 8 miles with a pit stop at Temple Newsam tea rooms to warm up and refuel, so do bring some money if you would like to get some refreshments.

We will be going at a leisurely pace which will take us approximately 2 hours, including a break half way round. 

Newcomers to Breeze rides as well as those that have completed previous rides are all very welcome. Do make sure you are dressed appropriately for the weather, in cold/wet weather it’s good to wear lots of thin layers, so you can add/remove them as needed and a rain jacket and gloves are a must in the minter months to guard against wind chill.

Wearing a helmet is advisable but if you don’t have one please do not 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.

If you are arriving by train Garforth station is the nearest although you will have to lug your bike up the steps to cross the bridge. East Garforth station is an easier option, with slops and is not far away but has less frequent trains.

The ride will go ahead unless the weather is very unfavourable. Please make sure your contact details are correct so that should I need to cancel I can let you know.

Contact number on the day is 07950 444715

I look forward to seeing you there!

Meet the Champions

  • Wendy Bartholomew Wendy Bartholomew Hello and welcome to Breeze, I’m Wendy and a relative newbie to cycling. I haven’t cycled for years but last year I found my bike at the back of the garage and dusted it off, fixed it up and got back on it after many years of away from the saddle. It’s such a great way to exercise, get about and see more of the countryside that it prompted me to join the Breeze network to inspire and help others to share and enjoy the experience of cycling. Breeze rides are a fab way to join other woman on mainly off road rides, at a pace that suits you. Group rides are an informal, friendly, fun and relaxed way to cycle so I look forward to meeting you on the next ride.
