Welcome to our friendly community!
Join York’s walking and cycling movement – it’s the natural way to get around our beautiful city.

We run regular free activities in York – monthly social rides, monthly walks as part of a walking book group, cycling without age rides, bike maintenance workshops, cake confidence bike loans and training for new or returning cyclists, cycling families support, a city-wide Walk Cycle Festival and interactive community social media. All free and a lot of fun! Everyone is welcome.

“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
