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, Nov 10

Another great turnout today....Alison, Angie, Lynn, Sheila, Marj, Fiona, Ali, new Belle...Nicolette, Judy, welcome back Ruth! and Lisa

We met at Goodwood Hotel, cut through the estate and along past the motorcircuit cutting through Lavant and made our way to West Stoke. From here we went our usual route through Funtingdon, turning right at the pub and down turning towards Walberton. From here Fiona took over and cycled up her long slow hill, which was great for our stamina, ending up at our cafe in Compton....

Now here's the funny bit....Sheila locked her bike to Lynn's outside the caff, but she forgot to bring the key!! We suggested they both cycle home very carefully, but they weren't impressed with this suggestion so a friend of the cafe's owner brought his saw but as he had an operation yesterday he couldn't do anything with it. So yours truly with the help from Alison sorted it out in about 20 seconds....

Don't buy this type of lock as it's made of mostly plastic with a thin piece of wire running through it. I think Sheila bought it from Tesco. The 'D' lock designs are considered the best.

Hope everyone got home safely and hope to see you next week for TWO rides including Brunch at the Woodmancote...£5.
