At iCycle we want to project the right image and a major part of that image is our Club Kit.
Orders for Club Kit are placed with the manufacturer periodically. The Club Kit Shop will be opened for at least two weeks prior to the order being placed with the manufacturer.
You can pay by cheque, bank transfer or cash. To do this, go to the Club Kit Shopand download, print and fill the paper order form and forward, with payment to our Club Kit Coordinator. The link for the order form (pdf) is at the top of the Club Kit Shop page. Please make cheques to iCycle.
You can pay by PayPal, credit card or debit card. To do this, go to the Club Kit Shop and add your items to the cart, and then click Checkout and you will be forwarded to the PayPal website, where you can either pay using your PayPal account (if you have one) or with credit card or debit card (via PayPal) even if you don't have a PayPal account. You will not be charged any additional fee for using this payment method. Don't forget to select your size (S,M,L,XL,XXL) for each item from the dropdown menu.
If you want your order to be mailed to your home when it arrives from the manufacturer, add the £5 postage and packing fee item to your cart. Otherwise, you will need to collect from the Club Kit Coordinator.
Please note that members competing for iCycle in BC and CTT events are required to wear iCycle club kit or a plain kit which cannot be construed as belonging to another club. Any such competitor who rides in an alternative clubs kit whilst registered as riding for iCycle will subject themselves and iCycle to disciplinary measures and will lead to all iCycle members competing in the event to be disqualified.
Have you ever fancied the challenge of riding the routes of your cycling heroes? The Ventoux, the Marmotte, the Tour De France Etape, the Hell of the North, Paris-Roubaix? Or closer to home; the challenge of the Etape Caledonia or the Beast of Exmoor.
All of these challenging rides involves either considerable distance, or considerable climbing, or both, sometimes in extreme conditions. Such challenging rides can either be officially timed and recorded through organised bodies or done unofficially with friends or colleagues at the rider's own discretion - lets face it, just completing the distance/climb is challenge enough.
Whatever your challenge, iCycle members can help you to achieve your goals through training, support and advice.
Some iCycle members target sportives and etapes throughout the year, and these will appear on the Calendar of Events. Sometimes this involves organised iCycle trips and sometimes a group of individual members will get together through the iCycle Hub to arrange their own participation in such challenges.
Share knowledge at iCycle, of fitness, health, nutrition, cycle technique, equipment and maintenance.
iCycle members have accrued considerable knowledge and experience with respect to fitness, health, nutrition, cycle technique, equipment and maintenance.
At iCycle we are happy to share that knowledge and experience with you; from providing informal general advice to to occaisonal workshops. Members are always happy to talk about choosing the ideal bike, or how to keep it on the road in pristine condition.
As an iCycle member you can get discounts at some local suppliers to ensure that you can get the best deal and service available.
Occasionally at iCycle we invite subject specialists to deliver lectures or tutorials on specific subjects; cycle maintenance, nutrition and aerodynamics are but a few.
Social Rides and events at iCycle, for connecting with others and sharing experiences.
Fun rides are not fast, not competitive and not particularly exerting but they are enjoyable.
The Sunday Club Ride at iCycle is an opportunity to do a medium distance, medium paced ride amongst the support of other cyclists of similar fitness as well as experienced and knowledgeable cyclists. Nobody gets left behind.
Enjoy the company of others on quiet and interesting routes and keep fit at the same time.
iCycle also organise regular get-together events which may range from a weekend away cycling on interesting routes throughout the UK, to a short local ride at a leisurely pace followed by a drink or two, or lunch, in a local country pub or cafe.
We also organise periodic social events throughout the year which take place in and around Bedford.
Cycling is an excellent way to get fit. iCycle rides provide opportunities at all levels of fitness.
iCycle has rides throughout the year at different levels to suit all abilities. This allows new riders to progress from novice rides through to longer rides, with support and advice from more experienced members on the best way to improve your fitness.
For more experienced riders, the club rides are graded to allow you to challenge yourself to improve, or relax at a more social pace for recovery. Learning to ride in a group is rewarding, fun and allows you to improve your riding skills.
Throughout the year, all iCycle members join together to turn the legs on a ride throughout Bedfordshire's quiet country lanes, every Saturday and Sunday morning, with other regular rides during the week at appropriate times of the year.
