North Lincolnshire council breezing to an active lifestyle

North Lincolnshire Council is continuing its partnership with British Cycling, and has trained up some local Breeze champions to deliver free bike rides for women.

Emphasis on leading a healthy lifestyle has inspired many to join their local gym, but it can often be an intimidating and off-putting environment. Breeze bike rides, on the other hand, are a way to keep fit, healthy and confident. The Breeze network provides extensive information, support and advice on safe routes in local areas.

British Cycling’s Breeze network delivers women-only bike rides for all ages and abilities and are organised by local trained Breeze champions. The network will help you meet likeminded individuals and offer encouragement to become healthier. The given speed of any ride is determined by the whole group, for a pace suitable to everyone’s fitness and endurance levels. A café pit stop is set aside for either the beginning or end of each session. Annette Watkinson local Breeze champion in Barton-upon-Humber says: “Breeze bike rides are perfect for helping women get out and about in a fun and informal way. We’re here to support you and as our rides are centred on the social side of riding a bike, there’s never a dull moment.”

The next Breeze ride takes place on Sunday 9 August at 10am from Riddings Pool, following a 17 mile ride along the river. To join a Breeze bike ride in your local area, click here. Alternatively, visit the Breeze Network – North Lincs Facebook page.
