About us

Bingley Belles is a Cycling UK affiliated group.  We are a women's community cycling group.

Based in Bingley, West Yorkshire, we cycle for pleasure, fitness and wellbeing along canal routes, off road and some quiet roads. Women of all abilities from Bingley and surrounding areas are welcome. Our routes are from 5 to 15 miles, ranging from beginner level to the more challenging routes.  We usually start and finish in Bingley.

We do have bikes which you can borrow if you don't have your own and can arrange lessons for you with a professional cycling instructor (there is a charge for the lessons).

If you are learning or returning to riding and want to develop your cycling skills and build confidence, we are the group for you.  

  • Guided, social and cake & coffee rides 
  • Meet new friends
  • Non-competitive, friendly, inclusive women’s club.
