Monday's Main outing

Monday 4th November 2013 at 10.00am 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
Billesley Tennis Centre (Swanshurst School side of car park accessed from Wheelers Lane)  B13 0ST
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.
2 hours 30 mins  (2 hours 10 mins cycling)
Breeze Bike Rides
Guided Rides Great routes and support from trained leaders


Breeze Bike Rides in Birmingham

Monday’s Main outing

Julie (Solihull Breeze) and myself (South Birmingham Breeze) have started putting on joint Monday outings and if you can’t join us on this ride, for whatever reason, but are interested and available for Monday rides in the future please contact one of us on the numbers below. We plan to build a programme of rides/outings based on the abilities and interests of the women who want to take part. Each ride will have a shorter version depending which of the 2 start points you choose. Hopefully all will become clear!

The main ride starting at 10am from Billesley Tennis Centre (Swanshurst School side of car park) will be 18-20 miles approx. This group will “pick up” the shorter version group(14 miles approx) who will meet with Julie and start at 10.15am from the Stratford Rd Main entrance to Shirley Park. .Our joint route will then  take us out to explore the country lanes in and around Lapworth/Hockley Heath, taking in a tea/coffee and cake stop around the halfway point. IF YOU PLAN TO START/END YOUR RIDE WITH JULIE IN SHIRLEY PLEASE LOOK FOR AND BOOK “Monday’s Mini outing” on the website and do NOT book onto the main ride.

This ride is for everyone who enjoys cycling and wants to be among like minded women cycling at a relaxed pace, making new friends, exploring the surrounding areas and most importantly stopping for a cake and coffee at the half way point! 

In fact if you have any ideas about what you would really like to happen on the ride then please come along and tell us about it. Basically, Julie and I just want to start up a regular Monday cycling ride, we both love cycling!

So, please join us and either book onto this ride if you want to start at Billesley at 10 o'clock, or book on the Monday Mini ride to start with Julie at 10.15 from Shirley Park. 

Hybrid or Mountain bikes would be best as we’ll be using some canal paths, weather/mud permitting! Just remember to bring a spare inner tube and money for a cake!

Next week’s ride will be the other way round – main ride from Shirley picking up the shorter ride group from Billesley Tennis Centre and heading out towards Worcestshire/Warwickshire countryside.


We look forward to seeing you. Contact either of us if weather looks “iffy” on the day or to talk about Monday outings

Meet the Champions

  • Gabrielle Key
    Gabrielle Key I can remember having a bike and doing my cycling proficiency in the 60s but then didn’t cycle at all until a few years ago when a keen and road confident cycling friend encouraged me to have a go on her old bike. I loved our occasional trips out into the countryside and along the canals but didn’t have the confidence to venture out onto roads without her protection. Two years ago we discovered Breeze rides and I just loved the whole social cycling thing and the way the Champions looked after everyone in the group. Cycling with Breeze and Sky has opened up a whole world for me – it’s a fantastic way to explore the countryside, get from A to B under my own steam, meet new people, take on new challenges, keep fit and enjoy guilt free cake and a natter at the end of a ride! I hope, by becoming a Breeze Champion, that I can pass on some of my enthusiasm and encourage others to get on their bikes and join in the fun.
  • Christine Robbins
    Christine Robbins Hi, I'm Chris and I've loved cycling since I was a kid- I can still remember the excitement of getting a brand new red and blue bike at my seventh birthday party and riding it round the garden non-stop, ignoring all my little guests! These days I love the sense of freedom being out on two wheels brings- you just forget everything and enjoy the fresh air and the scenery.The great thing about the Breeze rides is that we always take time to stop for a coffee and a chat and it's a brilliant way to meet some new friends. Fun, friends, freedom and it's free.....hope you'll join us soon!
