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!

Maratona ride Saturday, December 10

We met at 1pm, which worked out well as there was a frost first thing. No time to take photos today as we were busy cycling up and down hills ...and trying to keep warm!

We started off at the Godowood Hotel, went up New Barn Lane, past Sculpture at Goodwood, straight across towards East Dean and down the hill, turning left at the pond and then on up Charlton Hill. I did this a couple of times, mainly to keep warm. From here we went back down Charlton Hill turning right towards East Dean and cycled up the East Dean hill - we all did this twice. Going down was much colder than going up.

After cycling the hills twice I found it was easier the second time around!  Not many miles in distance but in gradient, it felt quite far.

Next week we are cycling a much longer ride - meeting at 9am.

Elise, Angla, Fiona, Mercy and Sandra were out.
