Kings Heath Park to Birmingham Skyride

Starting Point & Postcode

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 40 mins  (1 hours 10 mins cycling)

Breeze Bike Rides in Birmingham

Come and be part of Birmingham’s cycle revolution!  Join us on this ride which will link with the Birmingham Skyride! We will start from Kings Heath park, at the car park accessed via Vicarage Road. We will cycle at a gentle pace through the park, and then down the hill onto the River Rea cycle route to Cannon Hill Park.  From here, we will start the Birmingham Skyride and complete one circuit together finishing at the Breeze gazebo, where there will be an opportunity to meet the Breeze team and other women riders.  You are welcome to complete further circuits at your own pace.  

Sky Rides are big, fun events which take over a town or city centre so lots of cyclists of all ages and abilities can ride safely together on a traffic-free route. They’re a great day out for families, with loads to do both on and off a bike.  You will need to register separately for the Birmingham Skyride at: 

This ride is suitable for all bike types. You will need to be sufficiently confident to be able to ride down a fairly steep hill (Avenue Rd / Dad's Lane) on the road. You will also need to make your own way home after the Skyride. 

This should be a really fun day, and we very much welcome newcomers as well as regular riders. 

Please arrive at 9.45 for introductions and bike checks.  We will leave at 10am prompt.

Come and join us!

Meet the Champions

  • Helen  Guy
    Helen Guy Hi I'm Helen. I've rediscovered my love for cycling over the last year. This began during a holiday, where cycling was included. I returned home and then discovered Breeze rides. I haven't looked back! I started with 8 and 10 mile canal rides to help increase my confidence and fitness. I enjoyed the social emphasis of Breeze rides and the tea stops! Since then, I've been encouraged by some great Breeze champions and I feel a confident rider. This summer I cycled up a mountain. I don't know how! As a Breeze Champion, I want to give others an opportunity to enjoy the friendliness of a breeze ride and improve in confidence and fitness. Look forward to meeting you Helen
  • Alison Rolfe
    Alison Rolfe I started cycling regularly in the summer of 2013, taking part in my first Breeze ride in the autumn. Before that, although I enjoyed being active, I hadn't been a regular cyclist since my teenage years, when I had used cycling as a way of getting from A to B. I found Breeze rides to be really friendly, as well as a great way of exploring the lanes, roads and paths around Birmingham and beyond. I now cycle to work regularly, and find my weekends increasingly taken up with rides! I am keen to encourage other women to get into cycling, to enjoy the benefits to health and to your social life, and look forward to meeting you on a Breeze ride soon!
