Consumer Promotion

Female Friendly Bike Shops

British Cycling's Breeze Network is a new national network designed to help close the growing cycling gap between the number of men and women cycling regularly whilst empowering women to change the face of cycling for good.

There is a huge untapped potential to gain new customers by promoting yourself as a female friendly bike shop.

ACT and Breeze partnership

The ACT have teamed up with the Breeze network to help promote female friendly bike shops. 

Together, the ACT and the Breeze network have created a scheme to recognise the work of bike shops that support women who are new to bike riding with straightforward advice, a range of women's bikes and family kit as well as information on local bike rides for beginners.

The ACT and the Breeze network want to recognise those retailers that offer a great service to women and support those that want to be part of the ‘female friendly' network.

Consumer Promotion

Recognition as a female friendly shop means you will benefit from national promotion on The Cycling Experts as well as promotion within the rapidly growing network of participants and volunteers of the Breeze network.

You can see the current list of Female Friendly bike shops here.
