Breeze is a British cycling supported initiative, ‘Inspiring women to ride for fitness and fun‘.
Here at Melyd, we have already being doing that, with the Ladies coaching sessions on a Monday evening at Marsh Tracks, Rhyl, Thursday evening rides during the lighter months ( May- September) and regular Saturday morning rides, from Rhuddlan Nature Reserve – delivering British Cycling Brreeze for North Wales – Denbighshire, Conwy, Flintshire.
However, we are still keen to get more women cycling, because as we know it is so fantastic. It’s a great way to exercise, to see the local scenery and meet people.
So four of us, Sarah Overson, Sue Nash, Kath Sparrow and me, Julie Allen, decided we would become Breeze champions. We did the one day training course, and have started leading rides on a Thursday, at a steady pace, on the quiet lanes of Denbighshire.
Some new women have joined us for rides, at a more leisurely pace than the existing Thursday night ride, although I think some of the new women will join the other group soon! We are all enjoying the rides and getting to know new people. Some of the women have also joined us at Marsh tracks for coaching sessions.
We hope to offer more ‘Breeze‘ rides at a different pace soon, so we can reach different people and encourage more ladies to enjoy the best leisure activity there is! If anyone is interested you can find the Breeze rides on Breezebikerides.com
