Welcome all Ladies to the Biking Belles
- Chichester and District Ladies Cycling Club, incorporating Charity Belles
The Club was formed on August 21, 2010.
Biking Belles: developing the wellbeing, fitness and confidence in ourselves. A club for women by women.
We now meet monthly, on the first Saturday of each month, meeting at 0850am, rolling out at 9am promptly and usually back by 12.30pm.
We always stop halfway for that important cuppa and a slice of cake! We cycle in the region of 35miles and you would need to be fit enough to cycle this distance.
We're a friendly women's group meeting up for monthly rides normally in the Goodwood area. There are always hills somewhere along our routes so you should be able to cycle hills also in order to enjoy your ride with the Belles. These are enjoyable, social rides aimed at any women looking for a gentle paced ride with lots of good chat in a fun and supportive group ride. The routes change each month and we aim to keep to quieter lanes but sometimes we will need to slip onto busier roads to complete our route. We regularly stop off at the Goodwood motor circuit for our cake and coffee.
There are always a few of us who turn up regardless of the weather conditions and we cycle throughout the year.
Please note: Cycling is a sport where accidents can happen and The Biking Belles will not be held responsible or liable for any accidents or injuries which might occur while cycling with the Club. You cycle with us at your own risk.
To enjoy our rides you should be fit enough to cycle at least 20 miles at a good pace.
It's been a very exciting few 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. We want to make a difference to women's cycling.
The BBs have grown and has become an exciting Club to be involved with, in 2012 we formed the Charity Belles which is our fundraising section. We are proud to have as our patron the Countess of March and Kinrara, Goodwood House, Goodwood, West Sussex.
Charity Belles is an important part of the club as we feel it is important to help those well deserving charities which may not receive the publicity they deserve for whatever reason. Please visit our Charity Belles page for full details. We are proud to have raised over £3,000 since the club was formed.
In 2017 the Club's chosen charity was Canine Partners who are located near Midhurst, West Sussex - www.caninepartners.org.uk. Here we raised £350 for this well deserving charity.
