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!

St Swithins day

It actually didn't rain ...and we even managed to sit outside at our cafe in Compton!

We had a great turnout today - Malc Belle, Morag, Angie, Sandra, Caroline, Mercy, Angela, Julia and Steph

We met at Goodwood Hotel and made out way via East Dean, West Dean, Chilgrove, Mardens and then stopped at our cafe in Compton.

We officially welcomed Malc on his first ride as our honorary Belle...and he looks splendid in his spotty top!

Julia had a fall along the back lanes in Chilgrove....our first fallen Belle for quite some time...

Close up.....

She was fine, just road scuffs.....Doctor Belle had several antiseptic wipes, tissues and the ever important aloe vera fragranced wet wipes to make everything smell pretty and nice afterwards.

Mileage: 32, not the Maratona but we had a few long pulls towards Compton which sort of brought back some Maratona memories!

Next week Claire has come up with what looks like a great ride around the Rowlands Castle area - approx 25 miles. There are a few Belles meeting at 9am in Chichester and cycling to the start in Rowlands Castle. Email me if you'reinterested in coming along.
