In what can only be described as the most exciting year the UK has ever seen, British Cycling’s Breeze Network is on the hunt for inspirational women to become the next generation of Breeze champions in Birmingham.
The Breeze network empowers women to change the face of cycling for good and leave a lasting legacy. Led by women for women, Breeze relies on a hugely important group of volunteer champions to make this programme come to life. Breeze champions will help other women enjoy the fun, fresh air and freedom offered by bikes rides. There is no need to be a cycling expert – just be confident on a bike and keen to help others.
If there are any enthusiastic women out there who want to bring out the exciting, friendly and sociable elements of bike rides – Breeze has just the thing. This Ride Leader Award empowers and supports women to lead and deliver women-only bike rides in their local area and shares tips and advice on all practical aspects of a ride.

Natalie Justice, Breeze Network Project Manager for British Cycling, said: “We are so excited about this course and can’t wait to meet some fabulous people who’ll encourage local women to get on their bike and have fun. There really is no better time to be helping women get on a bike, so what are you waiting for? Go to the website and find out more.”
After completing the award and receiving their fabulous free Breeze kit and British Cycling Ride membership, the Breeze champions will be able to deliver their bike rides. The great thing about this network is that women don’t have to lead alone. Add an extra dose of girl power and team up with a friend to become Breeze buddies and deliver the ride together. The opportunities are endless.
