Women only Breeze Rides are all about fun, friendly, informal bike rides led by women, for women. They're ideal for all abilities and are great for building confidence and getting some gentle exercise. You might not have ridden a bike for a while and be looking for the easiest way to get back in the saddle, or be looking for a sociable way of getting out and about in your local area. Breeze rides are gently-paced, not too long, and often take in a stop for coffee or a cake. Kids are welcome to come along too.

- 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 Basingstoke and Deane
CANCELLED...... It's re-freezing again and not due to get above -2 overnight then snow again in the morning therefore the planned roads/routes are not worth the risk. Down Grange car park is an ice rink. Just been out on the mountain bike and everything is just freezing was a bit sketchy! I will rearrange......... get out on a short safe route if you can!
We'll meet outside the Hockey Club which is the building opposite the main entrance to the Astroturf pitch at Down Grange Sports Complex. If it is raining then there is cover in the entrance area. There is first come first served car parking and access for vehicles (including bikes!) is from the main Pack Lane entrance and follow the road around the athletics track and it will dead end in car parks by the Hockey Club building by the Astroturf pitch.
We'll aim for about 15 miles or so - road bikes and hybrids are suitable - route will be this or a slight variation, and a reasonable pace for those getting back into it at this level, not been out for a while, but not racing! Level required is general/basic fitness. If you are already a regular road cyclist on a road bike, you will probably find this slow but you are welcome if you are social, wait for slower riders.
Head out towards Oakley, do a loop exploring some nice Hampshire lanes, and then come back. Optional refreshment stop at the end at the Hockey Club. I will check that we can access the bar/catering outlets.
