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!

New Years Day ride

Hickey Nude Ear....oops too much mulled wine at lunchtime, lets start again.....

Happy New Year to all Belles!

We had two clowns, a purple Quality Street, two fairies, a Christmas pudding, a rheindeer and a french lady. The prizewinner was the Christmas pudding - Angela, who recieved a set of Cath Kidston hand creams. Thanks very much to the landlady and the manager at The Fox Goes Free for their wonderful mulled wine...hic...burp....and we'll be back next year for more!

We had a fun ride today, meeting outside Goodwood Hotel, not much cycling but plenty of photos to enjoy.....

Helmets in the pub....

On leaving the pub we split into two groups - one went back home the easy way - without any hills (obviously the reason being they had rather too many glasses of mulled wine!) and there was my group who took on Charlton Hill - well done to Mercy and Claire for their bravery!

Thanks to all the Belles who came out today - Elise, Claire, Angela, Sandra, Tizzie, Gill, Mercy, Nikki.

All the very best for 2012.
