Breeze Bike Rides in Kirklees

The route will vary slightly from the one published and will be between 30-35 miles. We will get to Digley by heading straight up to the Ford.

This ride is for experienced cyclists wanting a good day out. Average pace will be at least 12mph. Due to the time of year it will be cold and so waiting time at the top of hills will need to be limited. That said if you are happy that you can hold the pace it will be great to see some new faces out. Any questions please ask!

  • Pip Mourne
    Pip Mourne I am a runner turned cyclist, my main passion is mountain biking but I also love getting out on the quiet country roads. I have recently been inspired by British Cycling to become a Bikeability Instructor which qualifies me to teach children in schools what we all knew as Cycle Profiency. As a result of this I was inspired to become a Sky Ride leader. I am now a Ride Leader and Route Planner for Sky Ride and I love it!!! Hopefully if you are reading this you will have booked onto a ride that I am leading so I look forward to meeting you soon! All rides will be led at a pace that all participants can cope with, so don't worry about Bradley Wiggins turning up, if he does he'll have to wait for us!!!! See you soon.
