Belles on Bikes Edinburgh is a social cycling group for women of all ages and abilities. Our volunteer ride leaders organise regular routes with plenty of cake stops, so come along for a ride!  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.

Who supports Belles?

Belles on Bikes Edinburgh is currently supported through Cycling UK and the City of Edinburgh Council. Belles on Bikes aims to support women to get cycling together in a friendly, inclusive and relaxed environment. All abilities are welcome. 

How does Belles work?

There are no 'rules' as such, however please keep the following in mind before coming on ride:

• Please RSVP to rides and update your RSVP in good time if you can no longer attend. Our rides are always oversubscribed and it's a real shame when folk do not turn up. If you repeatedly no show, we will consider removing you from the group.

• Please consider the route and the level of difficulty before attempting a ride.  If you are unsure try one of the shorter, easier rides before coming on a longer, more difficult 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 organiser's 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 (complete with spare inner tube) and you have proper clothing for cycling.  If in doubt please drop us a line and we'll do our best to help.

We hope to see you at a ride soon!
