Breeze 16

 

Written by Bev Graham, Breeze Champion:

We had a visit from cycling royalty on our Breeze ride on Sunday when Joanna Rowsell Shand MBE, Breeze ambassador, double Olympic gold medal winner, 5 times world champion, holder of 2 world records and Breeze champion came on our Breeze ride from Costellos in Fairlands Valley Park. The ride was a 20 mile route on the Stevenage Cycling tracks closing the Stevenage Cycling festival which has been taking place over the summer.

Breeze champions were invited to enter a competition to win the chance for Joanna to join their ride and a team of us put together a presentation which caught the eye of Joanna and our presentation was one of 2 winners Joanna chose from 75 entries.

So this Sunday we had the honour of this amazing lady joining us on the cycling tracks of Stevenage. We were all very nervous before Joanna arrived but she soon put us all at ease and she was happy to chat to everyone as we cycled along. When we had a stop for coffee and cake Joanna had her husband bring her 2 Olympic gold medals in to show us all. Then at the end of the ride she was happy to sign buffs, helmets, water bottles and whatever else we asked her to sign. She was very patient while we all stood in line to have photos taken with her. It’s certainly a day we won’t forget.

Breeze is British Cycling’s project to get women out on bikes. The rides are free and are led by women volunteers who just want to encourage other women to join them on these rides.

We lead Breeze rides every other Tuesday morning from Trisports. To book take a look on the LetsRide website  but get in quick the rides get booked up fast.

What is Breeze all about?
British Cycling’s Breeze network is all about enjoyable, local bike rides for women & a  whole range of support, training and other opportunities too. The Breeze network is the biggest programme ever to get more women into riding bikes for fun.

  • We’ve have lots of rides taking place in Hertfordshire. Getting involved is easy, just visit www.breezebikerides.com
  • Breeze bike rides are led by women, for women.
  • The Breeze network is informal and social. It’s led by women volunteers.
  • Breeze bike rides are free and they’re happening all over England right now.
  • Breeze is part of British Cycling’s commitment to getting more women into riding bikes.

What made you become a Breeze Leader?
There was a link On the work place challenge website (an exercise based competition for any workplace to enter, points were turned into prizes and awarded to individuals and teams/workplaces with the most points)  asking for volunteers to become a Breeze champion.
I had been considering doing some voluntary work and this sounded right up my street as I love cycling & I enjoy meeting people. I have the communication skills required for this sort of thing as I am also a qualified ski instructor and I felt I wanted to put something back into the sport of cycling that I love.
It was either this or work at an animal rescue centre but I figured that would be too dangerous As I’d want to take all the animals home.
