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.
4 hours 30 mins  (4 hours 0 mins cycling)

Breeze Bike Rides in Birmingham

The aim is to have an enjoyable and  leisurely day out cycling. This will be a 26-8 mile ride at a steady pace of 8-10 mph for ladies who are confident on their bike and are looking to make the step up from the "easy" rides and travel further afield without speeding up and with lots of stops!.  This ride takes us out of Birmingham via the Fazeley Canal (a brilliant surface compared with the canal towpath to Catherine de Barnes on our Warwick outing!) and then through parks and a nature reserve to Sutton Park for our first rest/cafe stop. The route will then take us mainly on gentle country lanes to Lichfield. We’ll aim to be in Lichfield around lunch time – possibly having a warm and a bite to eat in a local hostelry and then spend as much or as little time as you like looking around Lichfield before making your own way back to Birmingham on the train

Helmets are recommended but not compulsory.  Please bring a drink and snacks, plus a spare inner tube and cash for train ticket home and for any refreshments you want to buy. Also bring  lights if you plan to stay on in Lichfield and/or cycle home from Moor St. DON'T FORGET YOUR WATERPROOFS!

I look forward to sharing a great day out with you

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.
  • Julie Batten
    Julie Batten I can remember my first Breeze ride - I was very nervous and very worried about being the slowest person and holding everyone up. Well, I was the slowest... the very, very slowest!! But the Breeze ladies were fantastic: supportive, encouraging, nurturing, reassuring and friendly. So, it's because of how well I was looked after that made me really enjoy cycling and want to become a Breeze Champion. When you come on one of my rides I want you to feel safe, enjoy the company of other female cyclists, gain confidence, improve your overall fitness, feel supported... and generally just enjoy cycling! So I look forward to seeing you and being part of your journey towards falling in love with Breeze bike rides just like I did!
