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

A pretty 12 mile circular ride from Earlswood Lake Craft Centre out towards Lapworth via Dorridge, through the grounds of the historic National Trust property, Packwood House, before heading back to Earlswood, via Hockley Heath.

This ride is mainly on quiet lanes and we will ride at 9-10 miles per hour (medium pace). 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 at the Craft Centre for a prompt 10.30am start. There is free parking at the Craft Centre.  At the end of the ride there will be an opportunity for those that want, to enjoy a warming coffee and maybe some delicious cake at the Craft Centre!  

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

Hope you will join us to enjoy this lovely Autumn Ride.

Meet the Champions

  • Siobhan Scanlon
    Siobhan Scanlon Hi,

    Back in June 2011, I was keen to get cycling back into my life but cycling to work to maintain some fitness, was proving impossible to achieve, with work and family stuff!

    I then found Breeze rides and have not looked back. Participating in the Breeze rides, I met lots of interested likeminded ladies, and made some great cycling buddies, whilst enjoying some wonderful rides out, evenings and weekends to a variety of local destinations.

    I enjoyed the variety of rides on offer all year round, which I could match to my other commitments and fitness levels.

    I loved the rides so much, and with much encouragement from other Breeze Champions, I trained as a Breeze Champion in 2012.

    Almost 5 years on, I am still loving life out pedalling, leading rides, chatting with my cycle buddies and enjoying the wonders of restorative coffee and cake.

    Julie Harvey Hi, my name is Julie I have enjoyed cycling for many years. I have been on some lovely family cycling holidays to Holland and last year cycled around Lake Constance in Switzerland, Austria & Germany, which was beautiful! I love to be outside in the fresh air particularly after a day in the office. I really love the freedom of getting out on my bike, I discovered Breeze last July & have become completely hooked, I love everything about Breeze. I have met some wonderful like minded ladies & made some lovely friends, we progressed together last summer and in October we had our first cycling weekend away together, we covered 100 miles in 2 days. We are now planning another challenge for this year. I decided to train to become a Breeze champion because I want to help other ladies discover the joy of Breeze, we are lucky to have some beautiful countryside & lots of lovely quiet lanes around Solihull. Oh and there is ALWAYS cake and a cuppa at the end of our rides! So if you like cycling, chatting and cake then Breeze is for you! So whatever your cycling ability come and join us for a fun, friendly bike ride.
