Heather Rugg from King’s Lynn Cycling Club KLCC has recently qualified as a British Cycling Breeze champion which allows her to take out small groups of lady riders.
Heather commented on her Breeze ride at the weekend: “Today we rode from Lynnsport to Sandringham where we enjoyed tea and cake at the visitors centre.
“The ride was 14 miles in total and challenged each of the ladies in different ways. The riders said Breeze was very well organised, and they were all keen to take part in another ride as soon as possible.”
The next ride will follow the same route from Lynnsport to Sandringham on Sunday, October 9.
More women are cycling more often thanks to British Cycling’s Breeze, the biggest programme ever to get women into riding bikes for fun.
Organised by British Cycling trained Breeze champions, the women-only free rides are on local, accessible routes and in small friendly groups.
Rides are taking place all year round and are ideal for women who are looking to get back on a bike and make new like-minded friends, starting at a gentle three-mile amble, travelling at the pace of the slowest rider and always including a stop for cake.
