Superb group busting with fantastic folk and creative collaboration at the heart of it” Liz

York Bike Belles has honestly changed my life. I came to York not knowing anyone, never really going out and now I’m finding excuses to go on my bike and meet people. I’ve made loads of new friends.” Mandy

I think Bike Belles is so successful as it’s a group of all ages with different backgrounds. It’s not competitive, just sociable and we all encourage each other.” Helena

No other cycling groups compare to the vibrant sense of encouragement, community and support that Bike Belles provides. What a truly unique community.” Hazel
