This November the HSBC UK Breeze network in Wales will be 3 years old. The programme has gone from strength to strength this year in Wales. We now have over 180 Breeze Champions, running hundreds of rides, across the country, each year.

Breeze is a female only cycling programme, aimed at helping thousands of women, across the UK, feel confident and comfortable about going on a ride. Led by women for women, our trained Breeze Champions organise free, local bike rides throughout the country, every week. These rides are aimed at providing a nurturing environment in which ladies can gain confidence in their cycling abilities. Rides range from just a couple of miles up to a maximum of fifty, there are speeds to suit all abilities, and they often start/stop at a coffee shop, so that participant can have a drink and a chat. Thanks to the wonderful work our dedicated Champions do, during the last 3 years, approximately 6000 Breeze cycling opportunities have been created for the women of Wales.

This year we have also seen the development of Women friendly cycling hubs, at Coed y Brenin in North Wales and at National Trust sites incl. Erddig, Chirk, Llanerchaeron & Penrhyn Castle, Hafren in Mid Wales, 14 Locks Visitors centre in Newport and Afan Argoed Forrest Park in the Afan Valley. Our cycling hubs are places where women can meet up for a Breeze ride, take part in coaching sessions, attend a maintenance course, and receive incentives from partners who support our programme.

To celebrate the HSBC UK Breeze’s 3rd birthday, Breeze Champions across Wales have decided to host rides over the 10th, 11th and 12th of November, why not join them?
