Bingley Belles

Bingley Belles is a group of women who want to go out cycling with other women, stop for a chat, look at the scenery or have a coffee.

We offer regular rides on different days and times of the month.

We go at the slowest rider’s pace… no one is left behind.

Most of our rides are flat and traffic-free, with options of hills and quiet lanes for the more adventurous.

All rides are free for members to join, have two trained ride leaders, and are categorised using our very own Cake Scale:

One cake

Easiest ride, often short and flat with no traffic, e.g. Five Rise Locks to Roberts Park

Two cake

Middle distance, maybe some quiet lanes, and one hill, e.g. Five Rise Locks to Cliffe Castle

Three cake

Longer distance, several hills, possible shared roads, e.g.  Five Rise Locks to Skipton

If you don’t have a bike, we can provide one for £3 per session thanks to the Bingley Yorkshire Bank Bike Library.

We also sometimes offer our members training opportunities such as beginners’ sessions, on-road training and bike maintenance workshops, depending on funding.

Our committee also organises regular events including socials and even cycling trips abroad.

We’d love for you to join us – Bingley Belles membership is just £5 a year.
