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 Solihull

This pretty 12-mile ride around the beautiful countryside near Lapworth and Baddesly Clinton will take us out to the hidden glades of the Hay woods.

This ride is mainly on quiet lanes and we will ride at 9-10 miles per hour ( medium pace). This ride is suitable for ladies who are already confident riding on the road and want to increase their distances for fitness and pleasure. The route is suitable for road, hybrid or mountain bikes.

Please meet in front of the station prompt at 11am. There is free parking at the back of the Forest Court centre nearby; we will direct you on arrival. At the end of the ride there will be an opportunity for those that want, to enjoy a warming coffee at the Station Bar (a lot nicer than it sounds!) 

Please bring a spare inner tube, some change for coffee and ensure your bike is fully maintained for winter riding.

Siobhan and I hope you will join us on this lovely ride.

Meet the Champions

    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!

    Siobhan Scanlon Hi, I did my first Sky Ride in July 2010 in Birmingham and then discovered Breeze rides in June 2011 when I discovered them by accident. After falling out of love with the gym, I was trying to fit more cycling into my life and it was proving difficult, with work and family stuff! Through the Breeze rides. I have made some great cycling buddies, and we have enjoyed some wonderful rides out, evenings and weekends to a variety of local destinations. I enjoy the levels of rides on offer, which I can match to my fitness levels and other commitments. This year I am planning to lead some rides as a Sky Leader and looking forward to planning some new routes in and around Solihull and Warwickshire. I completed my first 100k ride last May and this year aim to cycle at least 2013 miles, and have entered some local audaxes and Sportives to help build up the mileage. Long term the plan is to do a Coast to coast ride in the near future. Its official I am now a cycling addict!

    Elaine Slatter Hi my name is Elaine and I am a Sky and Breeze ride leader. I have always been quite a sporty, outdoors type but my passion has changed from the gym and walking to cycling in the last year. I signed up to the cycle to work scheme last February and started commuting to work. I soon started to feel all the benefits of a daily dose of exercise and fresh air and found a local women only cycle club who I could ride with a few times a week. After nine months of cycling I’m proud to say I managed my first 100 miler. Now i’m happy to encourage other people and I think both Sky and Breeze are fantastic incentives to get people out cycling, whatever your level. I look forward to meeting you on one of the rides. Elaine
