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!

Easy Belles ride, Sunday May 13

The ride today was a dummy run for our Charity Fundraising ride on June 16.

Welcome new Belles....Sue and Sophie. Also out today was Lynn, Sandra, Caroline, Tizzie and Steph.

Cycling along the Legionary cycle track we came across a pushchair, thinking there was a small child inside we were surprised to see a dog instead. Apparently this sweet chap is blind and has a little bit of difficulty in walking....what a great idea and he seemed to be very happy with this arrangement!

From the Roman Villa we made our way to the ferry, waved to our friend who loaded all our bikes on board. The cost of the ferry is £2.50 each way, including our bikes.

Once in Itchenor we stopped off at The Ship for a coffee, rather than going back along the Salterns Way, due to it being very muddy, we got back on the ferry to Bosham.

A lovely sunny day at last!

Caroline and Sandra...note the BB spotty tablecloth!

A few of us stopped off at the cafe in Bosham for a cuppa and a sandwich.  Caroline and Sandra then went off towards Compton (for a slice of cake at our favourite cafe) and then back home via some hills.

We said goodbye to Lynn, Sue and Sophie - hope to see you again soon.

Steph went home to watch the Man City match and Tizzie and myself made our way home via Tangmere.
