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, November 13

We had a great ride today - it was certainly hilly! Thank goodness the weather had improved - no wind or rain which was a blessing.

Well done to Jill, Ellie, Karen, Angie, Angela and Jane who came out and made it up those hills! I said at the start of the climb...'see you at the top!' I think this worried a few.....but we all made it.

Coming over the brow of the hill, the end of the hill climb!

Cycling back home was easier

Cycling along the Chilgrove lanes we passed some Christmas turkeys plus a couple of shoots were in progress. After our hard work we stopped off at the Earl of March pub for a well deserved drink!

Jane, Angela and Karen in the Earl of March pub. We reached the starting point of the ride at 12.30pm and the approximate distance was 22 miles.

Well done to everyone and hope to see you all again very soon!
