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 20 mins  (1 hours 30 mins cycling)

Guided Rides Great routes and support from trained leaders


Breeze Bike Rides in Northamptonshire

This is a gentle ride along cycle paths to Brackmills pocket parks, loop up 'alpine climb' then up and around Lake on to Great Houghton down through village & up to Little Houghton (very short stretch on Bedford Road, can use path) through Little Houghton down & into Billing Aquadrome through then back along cycle track for coffee at Riverside.

The ride is approximately 12miles suitable for Hybrid, MTB or road bike with crosser (treaded) tyre.

The pace will be easy so anyone new to cycling very welcome, a friendly and patient group of girls with encouragement if needed on those ups and you can recover on return with coffee and cake at Costa (-: so please bring some money.

Please bring a drink and if required a small snack with you. It's always a good idea to pack a waterproof and another layer of clothing.

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. 

Look forward to seeing you there!

Meet the Champions

  • Liane Higham
    Liane Higham Hi, I have been cycling for a few years now and love it, I have completed Sportives in the UK & abroad including Cape Argus, P2P & C2C. I ride a Road Bike & 29'r MTB bike as well as a tourer/crosser for coaching and have a lovely vintage Raleigh. I really love getting more people out on their bikes to have some fun, get fitter & feel great. I qualified as a Breeze Champion May '12 and lead regular rides for a great group & have 'newbies out most weeks! My entry level rides are great for those who own but rarely ride their bikes due to lack of confidence and worries about traffic/fitness etc. Our rides are mainly on cycle paths and country lanes around Northampton & always involve a coffee & cake! I also lead Breeze & Skyrides in Bucks & Beds and last winter offered entry level MTB skills rides with Get_Mtb. My day job is as a cycle coach teaching Bikeability in Northants Schools, I am currently looking at attaining the Go-Ride coaching qualification too. Really looking forward to my Breeze touring/camping holiday again this year as well!
