    Just a quick feedback to let you know that our first 2/3 rides have been a great success! Another one is planned for this Sunday! It is the Tour de Community Woodlands, starting from Marbury at 10.30 and a coffee stop at Anderton. Suitable as an entry level, beginner, or novice level for women and girls. I hope that the more sporty types will progress to the club scene!

    If you know any one who might enjoy a Breeze ride, then by all means give them my number!

    Thanks

    I am helping to lead a Breeze ride in Delamere Forest at 11am on Saturday 6th July. This is aimed at beginner or novice women, who are not yet ready to join a club ride. Any bike in working order is fine. No level of skill or fitness is necessary. Please let your family, friends and neighbours know! It is free to book online. Breeze is part of British Cycling, and there are regular rides each week across the county.

    Thanks

    Claire 🙂

    So that Dads do not lose out on our family Breeze ride, I have added a Sky Ride Social Buddy ride. This means no-one in the family misses out on quality time with their kids! Since this is on a Saturday morning, you can ride out on a Sunday club run the next day with a clear conscience!

    Thank you So Cheshire for writing such a lovely article publicising Breeze, Sky Ride, Northwich Guardian’s Pedal Power page, and the Guide Dogs for the Blind charity bike ride! 🙂

    Yesterday, I completed ( and passed!!) my BC coaches course level 1. It was a new-look pilot scheme, and I found it very challenging. I honestly didn’t believe I would pass – but somehow I did!I am now inspired to learn to be a better coach and a better cyclist. I will be planning new go-ride activities for the Spring, so watch this space! 🙂

    Well done Claire, that’s fantastic! You’ll have to keep a count of how many women and girls you get into cycling…

    Thanks Woody and Eleanor! I did 18 Breeze rides until the end of September, and I have done more than 1 per week since. There is between 3 and 8 riders per leader on each of my rides, plus 3 Sky Rides and a few Sky Ride social/Buddy rides. That means something over 115 rides/riders that I have guided up to the end of September, not including socials.
