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.

Breeze Bike Rides in North Somerset

This ride takes us from Portishead Marina to Bristol and back.  Finishing with tea, coffee, lunch etc at Chandos Deli cafe on the marina (taste tested/approved by Emma & Nicki on the pre-ride!)

This is a 21 mile scenic ride, hilly in places but mainly on cycle paths and a few main roads.

Not suitable for beginners, sorry.

Not suitable for road bikes either (muddy, rocky trails).  Hybrid, trail bike or mountain bike should be ok.  Mud guards recommended - it can be wet/muddy.

It's a good idea to bring some water plus lots of energy for this ride!   Please bring some money if you want to buy refreshments afterwards when we get back, where there'll be time for more chat and a drink or bite to eat at the finish.  You’ll also need a spare inner tube and puncture repair kit.

Wearing a helmet is advisable; if you don’t have one please do not to worry you can still take part.  If you enjoy the bike ride and would like to come again perhaps you could look to buy one then.

Please ensure a mobile number is provided in case the ride is cancelled due to inclement weather or other unforeseen circumstances.   If you've any questions please contact Emma Ruffle on 07718 376168 or emma@thebodyworksfitness.co.uk

Meet the Champions

  • Emma Ruffle
    Emma Ruffle I'm Emma Ruffle and I enjoy cycling. I love riding with friends and family around the country lanes near where I live. As a personal trainer by profession, I organise running groups for women and hope these Breeze bikes rides for women will be just as popular. Come out for a fun, free, bike ride with me in North Somerset. Follow the group on Facebook: 'Bike rides for women in North Somerset'
  • Nicki Watts
    Nicki Watts I've been involved in exercise most of my life, in some shape or form! I use to compete in Triathlons when i was younger and now enjoy just one sport at a time (or two!) Cycling & Karate. I trained as a Breeze champion in May 2013 and enjoy helping other women to become involved in cycling and exercise. At the time i was myself looking for a cycling group to join and wondered how many women out there felt the same as me and needed a helping hand to get out cycling!
  • Madi Hearne
    Madi Hearne 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!
