CTC Rides

iCycle is delighted to announce our association with CTC-Bedfordshire, and we are pleased to promote the CTC-organised rides to our members.

The CTC-Bedfordshire conduct several rides each month, suitable for any iCycle member who do not feel confident enough (yet!) to take part in one of our Sunday Club Rides.

Saturday Easyriders
On the 1st and 3rd Saturdays of month. Start at 10.30 and back by 14.30. Easy paced ride of between 15 and 25 miles, with a refreshment stop.  Rides are led by an experienced ride leader and commence from the Bedford Park Lake. Contact Veronica on 01234 219148.

Sunday Easyriders
On the 2nd and 4th Sundays of month. Bedford Park Lake start at 10.00 in Jan & Feb, 09.00 otherwise. Like the Saturday rides they are easy paced but longer rides of 30-35 miles, with a couple of stops. Back mid to late afternoon. Contact Veronica on 01234 219148.  

Gentle Rough Stuff
On Sundays, the Gentle Rough Stuff ride commences from a location in Bedford, and explores the off-road firm tracks and bridleways of Bedfordshire's countryside. 10.00 start. Contact Dave on 01234 364363.

Classic Rides
One Sunday each month, the Classic Ride departs Bedford Park at 9.00 am and covers about 30 miles at a speed of 10-12 mph, and includes a cafe stop.  You can expect to be back in Bedford about 1.00 pm. Contact Pat on 01234 360981.

In the summer, April to October, there are also Starter Rides and Evening Rides. More details in the next Runs List which will come out in April.

Any iCycle member (Full, Junior or Social members) can attend any of the rides described above up to 5 times (Junior members need to be accompanied by a responsible adult).  After attending 5 times, subsequent attendance will require CTC membership, which, as a member of the CTC-affiliated iCycle Cycling Club, costs just £12 (usual price for CTC membership is £37 per year).

Many iCycle members are already CTC members personally, as the benefits of being a CTC member are second to none. Read about CTC membership benefits.
