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.
1 hours 30 mins  (1 hours 0 mins cycling)

Breeze Bike Rides in Derbyshire Dales

This is the first ride in a new regular Monday morning slot. It is ideal for beginners, those returning to the saddle after a long break or ladies who just want to start their week with a gentle cycle followed by coffee in the company of like minded women.


It will take place on alternate Mondays commencing Monday 29th April 2013 and we will meet in the car park in front of Hassop Station cafe at 10am. There is plenty of car parking available (pay and display) and even if you don't have your own bike, you can still come along and hire one!

The Monsal Trail is traffic free and relatively flat so it is an ideal place to get on a bike and increase your confidence. To begin with, we will do a maximum of 1 hour's cycling then relax afterwards in the cafe for a drink and chat.  Approx 6 miles max.


Hopefully once this gets established as a regular ladies cycling slot, we hope to be able to offer a choice of rides starting from the same point to cater for varying abilities but then all meet together in the cafe afterwards.


The route is best suited to hybrid type bikes.


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 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.
  • Melanie Flude Melanie Flude I have been riding since I was a child, but took up cycling more seriously last summer after being informed, I could no longer run anymore.
    I regularly cycle on my own clocking up between 10-25 miles, but more recently have been a Breeze participant, which motivated me and inspired me to become a Breeze Champion.
