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 West Devon

International Women's Day is a global day celebrating the economic, political and social achievements of women past, present and future.

Suffragettes campaigned for women's right to vote. The word 'Suffragette' is derived from the word "suffrage" meaning the right to vote. International Women's Day honours the work of the Suffragettes, celebrates women's success, and reminds of inequities still to be redressed.

Why not join us for a Breeze ride to celebrate the success of women’s cycling!

Come and join us for a nice leisurely ride along one of the most beautiful cycle trails in the country to a very bizarre pub for lunch.

There is ample free parking and toilets at Okehampton Station, where we start our jaunt.  Okehampton Station has been lovingly restored and has a buffet restaurant

Bike Hire is available at £8.50 a day from Adventure Okehampton, who are based at the Youth Hostel opposite the station. If you do want to hire one, Give them a call on 01837 53916 before the day just to make sure there is one available for you when you arrive, for more information please see their website.  Bike hire includes free helmet and bike lock hire

The Granite Way is a disused railway line which is mainly flat and a lot of it is tarmac surface which makes for really easy cycling.  It offers spectacular views over Dartmoor.

We will be stopping at the Highwayman in Sourton for lunch.  The highwayman is known as Britain’s most unusual pub and has to be seen to be believed.  That's all I’m prepared to say for now.  If you want to know more you’ll have to join us

10 miles may seem a long way but I promise you that it’s easy and you’ll be glad you joined us because we’re going to have a lovely day!

Unfortunately we can't take children on this ride, as they wouldn't be allowed in the pub

Look forward to seeing you there!

Meet the Champions

  • Lorraine Adams
    Lorraine Adams I am a mum of two very active boys who are my reason for getting into cycling, my eldest son took a liking to Track Racing and started to ride the local roads for training and wanted support and company. Whilst I can't keep up with him these days I have decided I like cycling enough to get out and about with other people who enjoy gentle riding too which is why I became a Breeze Champion, so go on give it a go and come out and enjoy the outdoors at a pace to suit you.

    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
