“I can’t thank you all enough for the work you’re doing with YBB – bringing so much joy to people’s lives.” Helen, Summer 2022

YBB 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 YBB 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 groups compare to the vibrant sense of encouragement, community and support that York Bike Belles provides. What a truly unique community.” Hazel
