Breeze Bike Rides in Burnley

Marie Sklodowska-Curie, often referred to as Marie Curie, was a Polish physicist and chemist, working mainly in France, who is famous for her pioneering research on radioactivity. She was the first woman to win a Nobel Prize, the only woman to win in two fields, and the only person to win in multiple sciences.


To celebrate this years International Women’s Day why not join us on a Breeze bike ride along the canal via the weaver's triangle to Gawthorpe.  We’ll stop for coffee and cake before returning back along the Padiham greenway


Please bring some money for our stop, you might also like to bring a bike lock, drink for the journey and warm clothes.


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!
