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 Derbyshire Dales

This ride is part of the Peak District Cycling Festival.

Car parking is available in the public car park behind the village hall. Public toilets are located in the car park. There is a small snack kiosk at the entrance to the car park and two cafes situated within 5 minutes walk.

This is a hilly road ride, mainly on quieter back roads however we will have to ride a very short section on a busier main road. Starting from the village of Baslow, we will pass through Great Longstone and Little Longstone on our way to Monsal Head.  From there our route will take us through Foolow, Eyam, Froggatt and Curbar. There will be plenty of opportunities on route to catch our breath and admire the view, including the stunning Monsal Head overlooking the viaduct. Approx 18 miles

The ride is best suited to women who already ride, have a level of fitness to get up the hills and are confident on the roads.

We will be stopping for a well deserved coffee and cake so please bring some money.

Please dress appropriately for the weather and you’ll need to bring a drink, snack to keep you going, spare inner tube and puncture repair kit.

If you have any questions for more information on all of our rides please see our Facebook page Breeze network Derbyshire

Look forward to seeing you there!

Meet the Champions

  • Christine Dicken Christine Dicken I've been riding on and off for about 12 years, initially for commuting and now purely for pleasure and exercise. I'm not the fastest or the fittest but I get there in the end and enjoy the journey! My cycling habits have been curtailed over the last few years following the birth of my son but I'm thrilled that he now has developed a love of cycling and I hope to help other women to enjoy cycling and encourage their children too.
  • Alison  Glithero Alison Glithero Since the age of Eleven I rode a bike to school and occasionally still commute when the opportunity presents but cycling for me is more about the feeling of freedom to escape the pressures of everyday life. Solo, get away from it all rides, group, social meeting up with friends and like minded people rides, touring, taking in and appreciating the fantastic countryside rides, the challenge of "climbing hills for the reward of the descent" rides. So please come and join us on a breeze ride and discover which type is for you.
