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 14

I just didn't have a chance to take any photos today, but I liked last weeks photo of bunnies repairing Sandra's puncture, so I thought I'd use it again this week....

Another great turnout today...Angie (who is now competing in the Maratona together with Morag and the seven other Belles), Claire, Elise, Sandra, Nikki, Mercy and Angela.

We cycled to Petworth / Midhurst / Cocking route - mileage: 48

A few of us cycled non-stop from Goodwood, which was hard work but something we need to get used to.  So we spent three hours in the saddle without taking a break. The rest of the group stopped off at the Choc Cafe in Petworth and I'm sure had delicious cakes there!

The non-stoppers returned to Goodwood at 1pm, without even stopping for a cuppa at West Dean!

Another good, testing ride for all of us.

The next Maratona ride is next Sunday - April 22. Please email me if you're interested in joining us on another tough ride!
