Belles on Bikes is a cycling group for women living in and around Glasgow. Offering a mix of rides to cater for all ages and abilities, the group is supported by CTC Bike Club, funded by Cycling Scotland and delivered in partnership with Youth Scotland and the Glasgow Bike Station.
Over the last year, Belles on Bikes has trained female Cycle Trainers to organise, lead and inspire women of all ages to get out on their bikes. Whether you want to start commuting by bike, cycle with family and friends at the weekend or just meet like-minded people, Belles on Bikes is for you.
There are no 'rules' as such, however please keep the follow in mind before coming on ride:
Please consider the route and the level of difficulty (yellow = easy, green= a wee bit further, slightly harder and blue = longer distance, hills and some busy roads) before attempting a ride. If you are unsure try one of the shorter, easier yellow or green rides before coming on a blue ride. Please always bring food and water with you and tell someone where you are going and who with. Bring your mobile phone and make sure you have a note of the ride organisers number before setting off. Also bring some money as there is often a much needed cake/lunch stop built in. All rides are pre-planned by the group but you are responsible for your own safety at all times. Please make sure your bike is in good working order and you have proper clothing for cycling. If in doubt come along to one of our FYOB nights at the Glasgow Bike Station - just for the ladies!
We have bikes you can borrow if you don't already have one as well as a regular programme of maintenance sessions, group bike rides and cycling themed 'meet ups'. Upcoming sessions will be posted here or you can find out more by emailing Victoria at firstname.lastname@example.org.
