BreezeBath is a new group organising all-inclusive bike rides for women, led by women! The idea is to create a friendly relaxed environment to get women of all ages and abilities out riding their bikes!
I’m one of four British Cycling accredited Breeze ride leaders in the Bath area, and we are running rides every few weeks in and around the city, on mostly traffic free routes. Most will be on weekends, but Fiona, one of our ride leaders, hopes to be running a few Thursday morning rides timed perfectly for mums after the school run.
Our first few rides have been great fun, although the weather hasn’t been kind! Last weekend, 8 of us headed out into the rain along Colliers Way, from Dundas Aqueduct. Everyone kept smiling despite the continuous downpour, and we all welcomed a much-needed coffee at The AngelFish café at the end of the ride.
