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 Wigan

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.

  • Sandra Green
    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 also branched out in to road riding having completed my first sportive late in 2012 and like to combine the two. This is my fourth 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 over four years having led over 250 rides and I am 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 our ladies (and children) rides with Breeze Wigan email me: Follow on twitter and Instagram : @breezewigan or Facebook:
