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!

Sunday, November 28

The day was freezing, we all wore several layers of clothing to keep out the cold. The 'Hardy Bunch' made it out - Elise, Angela, Mercy and me...Val.

We started at the begining of the Centurion Way and cycled along until we came to Hunters Race where we diverted off towards West Stoke then over to Funtingdon, Westbourne and diverted again towards Bosham where we stopped for a well deserved coffee at our usual cafe - Mariners.

We even met a bank robber......

Who went by the name of Angela!

It was such a cold morning we all wore so many layers we could hardly move!

We cycled all around the edge of the Bosham water back to Chichester.
A cold and chilly Bosham

The Hardy Bunch!

Distance: 22.5 freezing miles!
