Alison Hurford, 48, from Cardiff got back on her bike a few years ago, and now wants to share her passion for cycling with other women.
A retired primary school teacher, Alison has always encouraged the younger generations to keep fit and healthy by cycling but she required that extra push from her husband to get back on her bike, before becoming one of Wales’ first Breeze Champions in 2014.
“We all encourage our children to ride bikes, and probably cycled ourselves into our teenage years. But many of us relegated the bike to the shed once we felt we had outgrown the two-wheeled mode of transport!
Now that I have rediscovered my passion for cycling, and conquered my fear of hills, I want to share it with as many women as I can!”
The mid-week rides are full of girls, gossip and giggles cycling in and around Cardiff, with no pressure to be fast and furious! All you need is a bike and a helmet, and some comfortable clothing, no lycra required!
“Feeling the fresh air fill your lungs and having the freedom to go where you want is what Breeze is all about! Anyone can come along and join in the rides. We plan, you pedal!”
Alison’s Breeze rides take place during the week in the Welsh capital, follow her on Twitter @CardiffBreeze
