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!

It was a perfect day for cycling - lovely and sunny, yet cold! Ellie, Mercy, Karen, Caroline and myself made the ride.

We met at the start of the Centurion Way at 10am and cycled the length of the track until we reached the Selsey Arms where we turned left and headed towards Chilgrove and that hill! We all made it to the top and enjoyed the free cycling down the other side even more!

The views were stunning, we are so lucky living in this area. We cycled along the Chilgrove Road, headed towards Lavant and popped in to The Earl of March pub for a coffee. Before we got too relaxed we went back onto the CW, passing a small herd of rheindeer along the way. We reached the starting point at about 12.45pm. Karen and myself cycled back towards Tangmere and home.

Well done to everyone and look forward to seeing you soon!
