Evening Breeze Marldon Meander

Starting Point & Postcode
The Lodge car park, Torbay Hospital Annexe Old Newton Road Torquay  TQ2 7BA
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 0 mins  (1 hours 45 mins cycling)
Bike Type You probably don’t want to drag your road bike across bumpy trails. Maybe you want to make the most of the suspension on your mountain bike. This helps you match your ride to your bike.

Breeze Bike Rides in Torbay

This is a steady-paced evening ride through the lanes of Edginswell, North Whilborough, Compton, Marldon and Cockington before returning to the start point.

What better way to unwind after a day 'in the office' than with some fresh air and social exercise!

This is a hilly ride so not recommended for complete beginners but the hills are short-lived and broken up with some downhill’s and winding flats.

Wearing a helmet is recommended but if you don't have one you can still join in. Please bring a drink with you and a spare inner tube (just in case). 

High visibility clothing and lights may be a good idea - there are some darker tree-lined sections, and in case of mechanical breakdown too.

New to Breeze rides? Come and join us to find out what it's all about - we're a friendly lot! Road bikes or hybrids recommended.

Parking has been permitted by arrangement with General Services at Torbay Hospital on site behind The Lodge - window passes will be provided to inform security that the cars belong to the breeze ride - come and get these from your ride leader at the start of the ride.

See you there!

  • Elaine Mason
    Elaine Mason Hi I'm Elaine and I'm looking forward to meeting you on one of my rides! I began leading rides in March 2013 and I am loving helping more people get back on their bike - in some cases for the first time in many many years! I have loved cycling forever but have only been riding regularly again since 2010. I love cycling with friends, up and down a few hills, then stopping for a natter (and coffee, and cake!) in a good coffee shop! I enjoy leading a variety of rides, from easy-going short rides for those new or returning to cycling after a break, to the challenging ones for those riders practicing for a sportive or similar challenge of their own. New to Breeze/Sky rides? Come and find out what it's all about - we are a friendly bunch and you won't be disappointed! Get that bike road-ready and see you very soon!!

    Michele Radant Hi I'm a mum of 3 and grandma of 2 who works as a Cycling Officer for Torbay Council, teaching Bikeability I love riding my bike and teaching kids to be confident on theirs. I'm also a passionate believer that more people would love cycling if they had a little more confidence. I especially would love to see more women out on their bikes. It's great to cycle in a group of women having a good natter and a nice tea stop with coffee and cake. If you would like to know more about what our Breeze rides involve please feel free to call me on 07974651543
