Two Tunnels

Saturday 17th August 2013 at 8.45am This is what time the ride will set off. It’s best to get to the starting point at least 15 minutes beforehand to avoid missing the start.

Starting Point & Postcode
The Tobacco Factory, Raleigh Road, Southville  BS3 1TF
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.
5 hours 0 mins  (4 hours 20 mins cycling)
Breeze Bike Rides
Guided Rides Great routes and support from trained leaders


Breeze Bike Rides in Bristol

Route details below - two options now on meeting up:8.45-9am at Tobacco Factory (entance to car park on Raleigh Road)

OR 9-9.15am at Roll for the Soul on Nelson Street.  We will bring groups together at Roll for the Soul and aim to leave at 9.15.

If you want pre-ride coffee Roll for the Soul probably for you but if you need to park for free the residential streets around Tobacco Factory are probably easier (DO NOT park in the Aldi car park it's 2 hours only).

Route takes us down the Bristol-Bath bike path, meeting up with the two tunnels path (all traffic free) then we will come back through the tunnels, back to Saltford on the bike path and down to Chew Lake (where there is a tea shop).  Approx 40-45 miles.

Please make sure you bring suitable refreshments, drinks and spare tube etc.


Don’t forget…. Breeze are on a mission to spread the word about their rides, and need your help. If you introduce one friend who goes on to take part in a Breeze ride, you’ll receive a Breeze water bottle, introduce a second friend, you’ll be the proud owner of one of their swish Breeze Buffs, and introduce a third friend and Breeze will send you £15 of Love2Shop vouchers.

Meet the Champions

  • Nicola Waterworth
    Nicola Waterworth I am a ride leader and Breeze Champion leading rides that are mainly women-only in Bristol. I organise rides that range from 5 miles to 60, at a range of paces and levels. I am also a trained Level 2 Cycling Coach so can offer advice and tips on improving your cycling. I enjoy meeting all the women who come on the Breeze rides, talking to them about cycling and helping them find buddies, cycling groups and rides that suit them. I am also a big fan of stopping for a good cuppa and occasional piece of cake! For myself, I enjoy long solo rides, the sense of achievement a good hill climb brings, exploring new place by bike, summer evening rides with friends or my dad in the Dales and attempting very novice and not terribly good cyclo-cross.
  • Heidi Blunden
    Heidi Blunden Hi ladies, welcome to Breeze! I love riding my bike and encouraging others to take up two wheels! We are a fun group that always welcome new comers and no one's ever left behind. I hope to see you on one of our Breeze rides soon!
