Looking for London champions
Published 22 June 2011
The Breeze network from British Cycling is looking for inspirational Breeze champions in London. You don't have to be an expert cyclist, just enthusiastic and enjoy riding your bike! Three times more men than women currently ride a bike for fun, and we want to help close this cycling gap. Together with you, we're working to help thousands more women to have fun on a bike and feel the fun, freedom and fresh air that bike rides can offer.
If you're interested in becoming a Breeze champion, you'll take part in a fun one day ride leadership course, followed by a two hour workshop about the Breeze network where you'll have a chance to meet the Breeze team and other champions. In turn we'll provide you with free kit, British Cycling Ride membership (worth £24), and plenty of support every step of the way. Furthermore, to ensure you're able to deliver safe bike rides, British Cycling will contribute to a first aid qualification. Once you're trained you can organise, promote and deliver your own bike rides as part of the Breeze network. We ask champions to deliver on average 14 rides over the year to local women in their area.
We're aiming to train over 1,000 champions this year and we're holding the following training courses across London in the next couple of months:
17th July - Highams Park Coaching Centre, Waltham Forest, London
23rd July - Camden, London, venue TBC
