At Bedfordshire Road Cycling Club, our mission is...We are an inclusive club, we welcome all those whose passion is cycling, and who are willing to support us in the promotion of this fine pastime.
"... to provide facilities for, and promote the participation of the whole community, in the sport of cycling."
We don't tolerate discrimination on grounds of cycling ability, machine owned, sexual orientation, mental or physical prowess, religion or creed.
We welcome anyone who has an interest in any aspect of cycling, and who supports us in our enthusiatic promotion of its benefits.
No need for invitations, just browse our site or pop in to our clubhouse on a Thursday evening or whenever we have an event on, you'll be made most welcome.
This photo was taken in October 2010, during one of our GoRide events, which we run to encourage cycling among school children. This is the start line of the Under 8s cyclo-cross event. We held 16 age-grouped races that day!
We are delighted with the level of enthusiasm the children show, we have held races and trips to Chicksands woods to develop skill and confidence in bike handling, with typically 30 children attending for Saturday morning training sessions.
Time Trials and other competitive cycling activities
During 2010, we held almost 30 events at our clubhouse in Cardington. The photo above is from one of our time trial events.
ANYONE can compete in a time trial, you DONT need an expensive bike and it is a simple way to enter the world of competitive cycling ... but it can become addictive!
We are fortunate in that the start and finish line for many of our events is right outside the clubhouse front gate. We have tea, coffee, soft drinks, cakes, toilets, washing facilities, seating, outside garden and Barbecue area, overhead projector and big screen, to add to the fun!
We also have a free pool-table and darts-board, turbo trainers, roller trainers, tool kit, TV projection screen for live events and of course plenty of friendly club members, always ready to help.
