Welcome to the website of the Bedfordshire CTC.
The Bedfordshire CTC Group was formed in 1926 and organizes 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 ride.
All rides start from Bedford Park Lake and are led by an experienced Leader at a leisurely pace, so that no one is left behind. Most routes that we take keep you away from busy and 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 at a café, coffee shop or Garden Centre for a well-earned cake and good conversation.

Joining the CTC
You are welcome to join us for up to five Rides and on your first ride we will ask you for some personal details so that the Ride Leader remains insured for the duration of the ride. If you wish to ride on a regular basis, then we will expect that you join Cycling UK, the National Cycling Charity. www.cyclinguk.org.
