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!

Five Belles go to Glorious Goodwood

Ladies Day, Glorious Goodwood, July 28 2011

Artemis statue, back at Goodwood after being moved from The Trundle.

We had a perfect viewing position and very close to the bookies also!  I think Karen had two winners and I had one winner and a place. Elise, I think had one winner also. We all home with a little more money than we arrived with!

Frankie Dettori at the finish line after winning his race.

We had a wonderful day out and this is going to be an annual Belles event - it's already in the BB's diary for 2012!Elise, Caroline, Angela and Karen all met at my place at about 11.30am, loaded Karen's car with our picnics and bottles of pink champagne and made our way to Car Park 8 for a picnic before the racing.


Karen making sure there wasn't any chocolate left !
We saw some wonderful sights, a perfect day for 'people watching'...

Bras on heads...why??

Very high heels, plus plasters....

Lots of stretch limos....

After racing we returned to the car and while everyone was queuing up to leave the course we were happily tucking in to the remaining picnic and champagne! Tony and Peter very kindly collected us at about 8pm and drove us all home.

Tired, but a thoroughly enjoyable day - thanks to everyone for making this day such fun!
