Our AGM took place on the 15 October. Thank you to all the members who attended. Trevor Hughes’ talk about his experience of “Stewarding International Cycling Events” was a great success. More about it in the  Newsletter.

To-morrow, Saturday 13 December ride: cafe stop is NOT at Frosts but at the other Willington Garden Centre, on the main road at the entrance of Willington village when you come from Bedford. 

 We offer a programme of rides to suit all levels and ability.

An experienced leader accompanies each group, exploring local country lanes and cycle routes.

Stops for refreshment are incorporated into the rides at cafes en route; in summer it can be a picnic.

Apart from the Gentle Rough Stuff the Rides start from grid reference 055512, Bedford Park Lake.
