Become a Breeze Champion!
Do you love cycling for fun and meeting new people?
Are you passionate about getting your local community on a bike?
As interest in women’s cycling reaches heights undreamt of only five years ago, and cycling superstars like Laura Trott, Becky James and Lizzie Armitstead add an extra dose of girl power, British Cycling are leading the way in getting more women on their bikes, with an ambitious vision to get one million more women cycling by 2020.
The Breeze network is British Cycling’s exciting programme to get more women riding bikes for fun. Led by women, for women, Breeze relies on a hugely important group of volunteer champions to make the programme happen. Their amazing energy, enthusiasm, passion and commitment to get women riding bikes is infectious. They bring the programme to life.
British Cycling is currently looking to recruit new champions, there’s no need to be a cycling expert, just be confident on a bike and keen to help others. They’re looking for enthusiastic people to get involved in the Breeze network and inspire women to get more out of their bike, have fun with friends and get a recognised qualification at the same time.
To become a Breeze champion:
· You’ll take part in a fun one day ride leadership course where you’ll have a chance to meet like-minded women.
· The certificate qualifies you to independently plan, deliver and promote rides to groups of women.
· In addition to free training, you’ll be provided with a Breeze kit, British Cycling Ride membership and plenty of support along the way.
· Furthermore, to ensure you’re able to deliver safe bike rides, British Cycling will support you to gain a first aid qualification.
· In return British Cycling asks champions to deliver on average 12 rides over the year to local women in their area.
