Women only Breeze Rides are all about fun, friendly, informal bike rides led by women, for women. They're ideal for all abilities and are great for building confidence and getting some gentle exercise. You might not have ridden a bike for a while and be looking for the easiest way to get back in the saddle, or be looking for a sociable way of getting out and about in your local area. Breeze rides are gently-paced, not too long, and often take in a stop for coffee or a cake. Kids are welcome to come along too.

- 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 Wandsworth
We'll meet on Wandsworth Common, opposite the Bolingbroke Academy building site on the corner of Wakehurst Road and Bolingbroke Grove for a fun 9 mile ride including 2 parks and 2 commons, with one steep hill!
We will cycle over Wandsworth Common, then through back roads down to King George's Park in Wandsworth, where we will follow the Wandle Trail briefly, before taking quiet residential roads to Wimbledon Park.
From Wimbledon Park, we will take back roads up to Wimbledon Common - there is one steep hill here where we may have to push our bikes for a few minutes! Then we enjoy a lovely off-road section on (non-tarmac) bike paths on Wimbledon Common, past the Windmill to Wimbledon Village.
From the Village, we will cruise gently back downhill, through Wimbledon Park, and via quiet roads through Earlsfield and back up to Wandsworth Common, after which we will end the ride with a cafe stop.
Hybrids and mountain bikes are best for this ride, due to the off-road section on Wimbledon Common. Make sure your tyres, gears and brakes are all in good order to keep safe on the hills!
Looking forward to seeing you there!
