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!

Saturday, February 19 2011

A perfect day for ducks, and we saw plenty........

Mud, puddles and holes in the lanes everywhere.....

Welcome to new Belle....Victoria, and well done for cycling all the way from Bognor in the rain!

Due to the awful weather it was just Victoria and myself out today, many Belles suffering colds, it seems. 

We cycled from my place in Tangmere, towards the Goodwood Hotel and cycled up the long and slow hill towards East Dean.

We stopped off at our usual Singleton cafe for tea and coffee and carried on towards West Dean College and cutting left handed behind the College and along the quiet and pretty lane.

We saw plenty of ducks enjoying the weather!

Looks like Spring is almost with us, plenty of snowdrops were flowering along the lanes....

We then cut through Lavant, past the Royal Oak and through the Goodwood Estate, just about here it stopped raining - typical!

New Belle....Victoria.

I felt we achieved something this morning, but so glad to get home to a warm bath!
