The Chichester based ladies cycling club, The Biking Belles have joined forces with British Cycling who bring with them years of experience.

The event opens at 8am with three sportives (35, 50 and 70 miles), all competitiors will do one lap of the Goodwood circuit and then leave to complete their sportives in the surrounding Sussex area.
Following their departure, the circuit will open at about 10am to the general public (women only) to cycle around and receive training from British Cycling.
As from 1pm we have the Elite National Womens Racing - the highlight of the day and we are hoping for top women cyclists to enter. The first race will be the Lady March Grand Prix.
Early bird entries are now being accepted online at the British Cycling website: www.britishcyling.org.uk
We’re selling retail space at the circuit and are hoping local businesses will get involved and support this local event.
The event is supporting Boot Out Breast Cancer - www.bootoutbreastcancer.org.uk. A great little charity run by a team of enthusiastic women raising funds for much needed equipment in the treatment of breast cancer

Plus one lap of the Goodwood motor circuit
Due to some gravelly lanes we have had to amend the route slightly, as follows:
You will complete one lap of the Goodwood motor circuit then leave to follow this route...
Here's the 35m route, in addition to this you will complete one lap of the circuit before leaving to complete the route in the surrounding countryside
There is a small section of this route which has, at the moment, loose stones on the lane, as you turn off the Chilgrove road towards the Mardens. All participants will be emailed prior to the event date and there will be clear signs warning of any problems ahead.
