Our aim.....

Welcome all Ladies to the Biking Belles - Chichester and District Ladies Cycling Club (TM). Formed on August 21, 2010.

Biking Belles: developing the wellbeing, fitness and confidence in ourselves. For women by women.

We meet every weekend and the rides vary in degrees of difficulty and details of the rides are posted well in advance here on the Blog. We always stop halfway for that important cuppa and a slice of cake!

To enjoy our rides you should be fit enough to cycle at least 20 miles. For the timebeing we are referring all Novice / Starter rides to the CDC website. The dates of their rides are noted on this Blog, on the Starter page.

It's been a very exciting first couple of years and we have fulfilled our original aim to introduce more ladies to cycling, improve our fitness and to make new friends.....and to work towards and achieve those once impossible goals.

The BBs have grown and has become an exciting Club to be involved with, in 2012 we formed the Charity Belles fundraising section, raising over £2,000 during our first year. We are proud to have as our patron the Countess of March and Kinrara.

Social Belles meet once a month for a pub supper. An ideal opportunity for anyone interested in joining the BBs to come along and meet us all. It's also a chance for existing BBs to discuss future ideas and plans.

We welcome new members and I hope you enjoy being part of the BB's and that we form a long and happy cycling friendship!

New Years Day ride - 2011

Happy New Year to all BB's!

We all met at 11am and a few BB's dressed up in various fancy dress costumes, which caused quite a stir in Goodwood and all along the local roads.

Santa outside The Partridge, where we had a delicious Mulled Wine, some BB's had two glasses each!

It was fun and in the true New Year spirit we stopped off at The Partridge for a Mulled Wine, which was probably the best we had tasted for quite some time . We then cycled towards West Dean and then back towards Lavant via the Centurion Way.

Welcome new BB's - Caroline and Carol, we also had Karen, Angela (or Santa), Avryl, Elise (or Angel) and myself (or Mrs Santa) making the ride which was quite hilly in places.....sorry Carol!

We had a fun ride, we finished off the day with hot scones and tea at the Goodwood Hotel - a delicious end to the first ride of the year. We finished around 2.30pm and the approx distance was 16 miles.

Well done everyone and hope to see you soon!
