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 Eastleigh
International Women's Day is a global day celebrating the economic, political and social achievements of women past, present and future.
Suffragettes campaigned for women's right to vote. The word 'Suffragette' is derived from the word "suffrage" meaning the right to vote. International Women's Day honours the work of the Suffragettes, celebrates women's success, and reminds of inequities still to be redressed.
Why not join us for a Breeze ride to celebrate the success of women’s cycling!
This is a gentle ride around Chandlers Ford. The route is a perfect flat easy ride for new and regular cyclists, with plenty to see along the way. Our pace will be slow and steady to allow us to get to know each other and admire the views. The route is circular and we’ll use mainly cycle paths and quiet lanes.
We'll always ride at the pace of the slowest rider so no-one is left behind. Any type of bike is suitable as long as it's in reasonable working order.
There's a nice cafe near the station where we can end the ride with coffee or tea and cake, so please bring some money.
It's a good idea to bring some water and you may also want to bring a snack. Please dress appropriately for the weather.
Wearing a helmet is advisable; if you don’t have one please do not to 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.
We really welcome newcomers to our rides; we will always ride at the pace of the slowest rider so no one is left behind.
Look forward to seeing you there.
