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 March 31

'This road seems very bumpy'.......'No Sandra, you have a puncture!'

Malc came to our rescue again, helping Sandra out with her puncture outside the East Beach Cafe in Littlehampton....

Funnily enough we had only just been talking about repairing punctures and how bad we all were at it and what we would do if we had one during the Maratona. The conclusion was that no one would stop to help us!

Mercy seems to be giving Malc a round of applause in the above pic...
Think he was impressed that we had hand wipes and a bag to put the used wipes in - thanks to Tizzie.

It was certainly a lot colder today. We met at 9am outside our usual venue in Goodwood, cycled through Boxgrove, Tangmere and met Caroline and Rebecca outside Barnham Station and carried on along the Coastal Cycle Route to Littlehampton. Stopping off at the East Beach Cafe for tea / coffees and cakes. Malc and Becky had, what looked like a very good full breakfast.

We all felt we needed an easier ride today, as many of us were gettig tired of those hills! However, the Hills Belles Club starts in earnest on Monday evening!

Belles out today were :
Val / Mercy / Angela / Laura / Caroline / Rebecca / Sandra / Tizzie and Malc Belle.
