Breeze Bike Rides in Leeds

This is a lovely ride on the eastern fringes of Leeds. Although we will spend the majority of the time in the countryside we will touch upon some urban areas to enable a circular route. We will be going at a leisurely pace which will take us approximately 2.5 hours, including a break half way round. Please allow 3 hours in total as we will spend 20 minutes for the bike checks before the ride begins.

The route is predominantly off road on good cycle paths and bridleways. We will ride for 4 short sections on roads before rejoining the off road route that includes some of the Leeds Country Way. We will start from the car park at Glebelands, Garforth and head due south along ‘The Lines’ before taking in Kippax and Great Preston. We then head across to Swillington and Temple Newsam Estate, where we will stop for a break of about 30 minutes. Please do bring some money if you would like to get some refreshments from the tea rooms. We then move on to Colton and go through Thorpe Park before heading back to Garforth having rejoined the Leeds Country Way.


Newcomers to Breeze rides as well as those that have completed previous rides are very welcome. Please make sure you are dressed appropriately for the weather, in cold/wet weather it’s good to wear lots of thin layers, so you can add/remove them as needed. A rain jacket and gloves are a good idea too!  Please bring something to drink and a snack to keep you going.


Wearing a helmet is advisable but if you don’t have one please do not worry you can still take part.  If you enjoy the bike ride and would like to come again perhaps you could look to buy one then.


Contact number on the day is 07950 444715


Look forward to seeing you there!

Meet the Champions

  • Wendy Bartholomew Wendy Bartholomew Hello and welcome to Breeze, I’m Wendy and a relative newbie to cycling. I haven’t cycled for years but last year I found my bike at the back of the garage and dusted it off, fixed it up and got back on it after many years of away from the saddle. It’s such a great way to exercise, get about and see more of the countryside that it prompted me to join the Breeze network to inspire and help others to share and enjoy the experience of cycling. Breeze rides are a fab way to join other woman on mainly off road rides, at a pace that suits you. Group rides are an informal, friendly, fun and relaxed way to cycle so I look forward to meeting you on the next ride.
