Breeze Bike Rides in Solihull

This is a Steady ride suitable for women who are beginners who feel they are ready to go that little bit further. Its 10 miles at an easy pace around the country lanes of Packwood and Lapworth. We will meet at Dorridge Village Hall (parking available in the Village Hall car park).

Please bring a spare inner tube with you just in case of puncture and one of us will be able  help you replace this.  If you don’t have one don’t worry it’s not essential.

There is a very short section on Grange Road but then we turn onto beautiful quiet lanes, riding through countryside and passing through Packwood House. At the end of the ride those who wish can join us for a drink at the Railway Inn. Please bring some money if you’d like to buy refreshments.

We really welcome newcomers to our rides; we will always ride at the pace of the slowest rider so no one is left behind.

Coming far?  The nearest train station is Dorridge around 5 minutes ride away.  For more information on train times please see the National Rail Enquiries website.

    Siobhan Scanlon Hi, I did my first Sky Ride in July 2010 in Birmingham and then discovered Breeze rides in June 2011 when I discovered them by accident. After falling out of love with the gym, I was trying to fit more cycling into my life and it was proving difficult, with work and family stuff! Through the Breeze rides. I have made some great cycling buddies, and we have enjoyed some wonderful rides out, evenings and weekends to a variety of local destinations. I enjoy the levels of rides on offer, which I can match to my fitness levels and other commitments. This year I am planning to lead some rides as a Sky Leader and looking forward to planning some new routes in and around Solihull and Warwickshire. I completed my first 100k ride last May and this year aim to cycle at least 2013 miles, and have entered some local audaxes and Sportives to help build up the mileage. Long term the plan is to do a Coast to coast ride in the near future. Its official I am now a cycling addict!

    Christine Robbins Hi, I'm Chris and I've loved cycling since I was a kid- I can still remember the excitement of getting a brand new red and blue bike at my seventh birthday party and riding it round the garden non-stop, ignoring all my little guests! These days I love the sense of freedom being out on two wheels brings- you just forget everything and enjoy the fresh air and the scenery.The great thing about the Breeze rides is that we always take time to stop for a coffee and a chat and it's a brilliant way to meet some new friends. Fun, friends, freedom and it's free.....hope you'll join us soon!
