Meet the Ride Leaders

  • Lindsey Ball
    Lindsey Ball I’ve owned a bicycle for as long as I remember, but I really got back into cycling after completing the Sky Ride in 2011. After the Sky Ride, I started participating in local Breeze bike rides and I eventually became a Breeze Champion myself. Thanks to Breeze, I've made some lovely friends, found cycle routes (and coffee shops) that I didn't know existed and I now ride my bike regularly for commuting and pleasure as often as I can.
  • Shirley Ashford
    Shirley Ashford I am a Sky Ride Leader and Breeze Champion. I hope to help new or exisitng cyclists gain experience, confidence & skills on their bikes so they can enjoy their time on it and perhaps use them more. I am a leisure cyclist and also a memeber of a local cycling club. When possible I cycle commute to work.
