The Breeze network is British Cycling’s exciting recreation programme to get more women riding a bike. It is about fun, friendly and social bike rides in a local area – led by women for women. Funded by Sport England, Breeze relies on a hugely important group of volunteer champions to make the programme happen. Without their amazing energy, enthusiasm and commitment to get women bike riding, we simply wouldn’t be able to offer these exciting experiences.
We are looking for a number of Breeze champions across England. There is no need to be a cycling expert – just be confident on a bike and keen to help others. We’re looking for enthusiastic people to get involved in the Breeze network and inspire women to get more out of their bike, have fun with friends and get a recognised qualification at the same time.
To become a Breeze champion:
You’ll take part in a fun one day ride leadership course where you’ll have a chance to meet other Breeze champions.
The certificate qualifies you to independently plan, deliver and promote rides to groups of women.
In addition to free training, we will provide you with a Breeze kit, British Cycling Ride membership and plenty of support along the way.
Furthermore, to ensure you’re able to deliver safe bike rides, British Cycling will support you to gain a first aid qualification.
In return we ask champions to deliver on average 12 rides over the year to local women in their area.
