Breeze cycling group, based in Amersham, are hoping to re-open as soon as lockdown is lifted.

Although they are not able to ride together, Rachel Fennel leader of the group explained that they are still managing to keep in touch with each other and have been running quizzes, games of bingo, yoga and pilates sessions, and general catch ups via Zoom, Skype and Facetime.

They have set up a WhatsApp groups where members post photos of where they have been cycling alone for others to guess, sharing bike maintenance tips and general news.

Rachel Fennel said: "I have been exploring and have found lots of new, exciting local routes and have seen some cafes which we have not been to before so when we can cycle again, we will have lots of new places to go to.


"Breeze is all about remembering how good it is to ride a bike with friends. Organised by British Cycling trained Breeze Champions, these free rides explore local, accessible routes in small friendly groups.

"Rides take place all the year round and are ideal for women who are looking to get back on a bike and improve their confidence or to just get out there and ride and are a great way to make new friends."

Rides vary in length from 5 miles to 45 miles and there is usually a coffee and cake stop en route.

Rachel said she looked forward to seeing all our regular riders again and welcoming new cyclists to their groups in Amersham, Chesham and Chalfont St Giles when they able to resume group riding.

All the rides will be posted at
