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)
Bike Type You probably don’t want to drag your road bike across bumpy trails. Maybe you want to make the most of the suspension on your mountain bike. This helps you match your ride to your bike.

Breeze Bike Rides in Derbyshire Dales

Tuesday morning rides to encourage Ladies and Mum's with young children on bike seats or in trailers to get cycling in a traffic free friendly environment. Enabling the building of bike handling confidence away from the added worry of traffic. Heading in an anti clockwise direction from the cycle hire at Carsington Water, passed the visitors centre, beyond the childrens playground and on towards the dam wall. Taken at a leisurely pace governed by the slowest participant in a friendly and relaxed environment on an excellent surfaced, off road trail.

Please dress appropriate for the weather and in lose comfortable clothing. (Trouser legs should not be too flapping) It is highly recommended that all should wear cycling helments but if you do not have 1 as a total beginner do not let it stop you coming along... (UNDER 18 must wear cycling helmet to participate on ride!) perhaps if you get the cycling bug then you can look to make it your first cycling kit purchase.

There will be opportunity for a coffee stop at the end of the ride, so please remember to bring along some money for this if you wish.

Whilst it is an easy gentle ride suitable for complete beginners participates should be in good general health (if you do have any concerns re cycling please consult your GPs advice before taking part.)

So for a fun cycling morning please join us and why not bring a friend along too!

Meet the Champions

  • 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.
