- 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 Derby
Women of ALL ABILITIES are welcome to join us, the ride is suitable for all types of roadworthy bikes. The PACE will be LEISURELY.
We will leave the new Council offices in Derby city centre (toilets are available) via the Riverside cycle path, then continue along paths and trails to our destination, Elvaston Castle where a tea-stop will be enjoyed with the option of their delicious scones!
Our return journey will continue back along the Riverside Path to reach the Council House in time for lunch.
It’s a good idea to bring some water, snack to keep you going and money for if we stop at a cafe.
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.
We really welcome newcomers to our rides; we will always ride at the pace of the slowest rider so no one is left behind. We have a limited number of bikes that can be used.
For more information on other rides taking place in the north please see our Facebook pages:
Look forward to seeing 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.
