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 0 mins  (50 mins cycling)

Breeze Bike Rides in Basingstoke and Deane

This ride starts off on the cycle lanes from Popley up towards Rooksdown, at Rooksdown we then go onto an off road track through the trees, across the A340, care needed here to cross, then on minor roads through to Sherbourne St John back into the top of Basing Woods to finish back at Popley Fields Community Centre.

An ideal route for cyclists to try off roading, mountain bike or hybrid ideal. One slight hill through Sherbourne st John. Approx 8 miles in total and hopefully we might get to see some wildlife on the way round.

Newcomers to Breeze rides are very welcome.  It's a good idea to bring some water and you may also want to bring a snack.  Dress appropriately for the weather: in cool weather it's good to wear lots of thin layers, so you can add/remove them as needed; a rain jacket is a good idea too! Might also want to make sure you have some lights on your bike just incase now as the weather is on the change.

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

Hope to see you there

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.
