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, April 23

The BBs group photo, from the left....Elise, Ellie, Angela, Me, the top of Caroline's helmet, Mercy and new Belle, Sandra. Claire had joined us at the cafe and cycled with us as far as Walberton.

It was another wonderful day, the temperature reached 25 degrees. We met at the Earl of March in Lavant....

from Lavant we cycled along the Chilgrove Road (which is long and boring!), at the top we turned left towards the Mardens - some fairly tough hills around here. Made our way to Compton and had tea and cakes at The Village tea shop. It seems to be a very popular cyclist cafe and we all sat outside and enjoyed the sun and our cakes!

From the cafe we cycled towards Stoughton and saw some bluebells in the woods....

From here we made out way back through Chilgrove and to the pub. Elise, Angela, Sandra and myself forked off along the Centurion Way back into Chichester.

Very good to see you all and welcome Sandra and hope to see you all again soon. The next ride will be on Sunday, May 1st.

Exact distance was 22.21 miles.
