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.

Nice Road Ride Loop

Anyone wanting to get some road miles under your belt in preparation for Cycletta then come and join us on this 11 mile loop.  Dependant on the speed and fitness of the group we may do an optional second loop making the ride in total 22 miles.  If we choose to do the longer route we will be riding for approximately 2 hours with a stop at the end so it is advisable to put your lights on just in case.

This ride takes you on quiet roads through Wigan and outskirts of Bolton with some hill climbs to get you fit especially if you are preparing for Cycletta North on 12 May 2013. 

Helmets are advised to be worn during the ride and also wear suitable clothing taking account of the weather.  It is advisable to bring along an inner tube just in case of punctures as it isn't always easy to fix one with a puncture repair kit.  

Please log on to register a place as we are limited to 8 riders per leader.

Meet the Champions

    Sandra Green Hi I am Sandra Green, I have been riding for a few years on a mountain bike but have always found myself tagging along with guy groups. I have recently branched out in to road riding having completed my first sportive late in 2012. This is my second year as a Sky Ride Leader and I really enjoy meeting new people, trying different routes and getting out with like minded people on a bike. I have also been running Ladies Only Breeze rides in Wigan for the passed three years and always keen to get more ladies out on a bike, enjoying the social aspect as well as getting fit and meeting new friends. If you would like more information on Breeze Wigan email me: Follow on twitter: @breezewigan or Facebook:

    Louise Head Just over a year ago I was looking to join a cycling group. I saw the TV advertisement for sky rides - where will your bike take you? I joined in and throughly enjoyed the rides. I was introduced to Breeze rides by a skyride leader - since then I've never looked back, fun, friendship and fitness. The rides have been so much fun. I've met so many lovely people and my fitness has definitely improved! With a bit of gentle persuasion from Breeze Champion Sandra, I have trained as a Champion and I'm looking forward to meeting you and riding alongside. That's where my bike took me. Hope your bike takes you to one of our Breeze rides.
