Welcome to Cycling UK Bedfordshire. Cycling is a great way to see the countryside, meet new people and above all, keep fit.
If you are looking for someone to ride with, whether you're new to cycling, returning to cycling after some years away or a complete beginner then you will find a warm welcome with us. You can find contact details further down the page or simply turn up to one of our rides (listed in the Rides Programme) and take it from there. We occasionally organise rides outside our published programme these are listed in the Events & Rides tab.
If you would like to talk to someone before taking the plunge contact the ride leader listed on the Rides Programme or our chairman: Steve Clark 07739707604
We look forward to hearing from you and having your company on our rides.
Cycling UK Bedfordshire group (formerly Bedfordshire CTC) was formed in 1926 and organises weekend social rides for cyclists of all ages and abilities. We are a friendly and welcoming group who explore the wonderful countryside in North and Mid Bedfordshire. We are not a competitive race group so if your cycle is road worthy you are very welcome to join one of our rides.
All rides start from Bedford Park Lake and are led by an experienced Leader who ensures no one is left behind. Most routes that we take keep you away from busy, fast roads, although you may cross them or ride very short lengths where it is safe to do so. If you have not ridden in a group before, other riders will help you throughout the ride so that you soon feel comfortable with riding with others. We are not a race group and we ride safely showing respect to all road users.
Reflecting the ethos of the Group, all rides take a break around half distance. This usually at a café, coffee shop or Garden Centre for a well-earned cake and good conversation. If you are unable to meet at the park you are welcome to meet there. Details are on the Rides Programme
