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!

Sunday, May 15

We met at the start of the Centurion Way and cycled along the Salterns Way to the Ship in Itchenor. It was a windy morning, but dry and sunny.

Welcome to new Belles....Fiona, Nikki and Fiona.

We all stopped for lunch at the Ship, who offer good food and huge portions!

Mercy, Angela, Ellie, Fiona, Fiona, Caroline, Nikki and Elise.

From the Ship we waved for the ferry to take us over to Bosham....

The ferry was busy so we split into two groups and waved bye to Ellie, Nikki, Angela and Elise.....

This is a great service to have and seems to be popular amongst cyclists to get from one side of the shore to the other...

This chap seemed to be having a great time in the water!

Back at Bosham Hoe we cycled towards Chichester along the quiet lanes and reached the start of the ride at about 2pm.

This was a shorter and easier ride than usual. It was good to see everyone again and hope to see you all soon.

The next ride is on Sunday May 22 and will be a MTB ride!
