Breeze Bike Rides in Dudley

This is a ride of approximately 20 miles, leaving Mary Stevens Park and heading into the countryside, cycling mainly along country lanes around Caunsall, Cookley and Kidderminster before having a refreshment break at The Old Village Stores in Wolverley, a very pretty and friendly cafe - one of our favourite stops!

This route is a little bit hilly in places with brief sections on busy roads, therefore this ride would be best suited to those who are a little more experienced, but we will be riding at 'chatting' pace (i.e. relaxed!). If you need to be back by a certain time, this may not be the ride for you as we cannot guarantee a return time due to The Unexpected (mechanical problems, weather etc).

Please make sure that your bike is in good working order and bring a spare inner tube (correct size for your bike). Please bring a drink and emergency snack, and money for refreshments.

You may also need to bring an extra layer, gloves and waterproof. Wearing a helmet is advised as we will be out on the roads.

Look forward to seeing you there!

Meet the Champions

  • Mary McAdam Mary McAdam Hi, I'm Mary and I've always enjoyed cycling, whether it was wandering off to explore as a child, being a hard up student, a mum doing 'something different' with young children or trying to get some 'me' time. However, I was a fairweather-traffic free-slow rides only with lots of stops- cyclist who didn't understand the concept of changing gears (having driven automatic cars for many years) or that you could change the saddle on your bike if it was Really Uncomfortable...

    All that changed when I joined a local cycle club. With lots of help, advice and encouragement I have gained confidence and had many experiences and adventures (usually with overloaded panniers...). I'm now a Bikeability Instructor, I volunteer for the Leap Over 50 Cycling Programme with AgeUK in Dudley and best of all, I have an encyclopaedic knowledge of all the cafes within a 50 mile radius of Stourbridge!

    I'd like to encourage more women to get on their bikes; to improve their cycle skills so they can ride safely and confidently; to get to know the local area and most of all, to gain a fantastic circle of like-minded friends. All are welcome - from the Totally Terrified to the Extremely Experienced. Looking forward to seeing you soon!
