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 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 got back into cycling a couple of years ago with the help of the Breeze ride network. I hadn't cycled for years before that and it was great to rediscover what all the noise is about. It’s such a great way to exercise, get about and see more of the countryside, save money on transport and be sustainable while you are at it. I joined 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 cycle with the focus on off road but good cycle paths. There are all sorts of rides on offer up and down the country at a pace and distance that suits you, run by an army of Breeze Champion volunteers . Group rides are informal, friendly, and are a fun and relaxed way to cycle, So give it a go and come and join us.
