Obituary : Our President - Terry Bush

We are deeply saddened to report the death of our President, Terry Bush, on 18th February 2023.

Terry had been an active and contributing member with the Club for many, many years.

An accomplished racer in his day, he was Road Race Champion in 1959
He rode 223 miles 143 yards in the North Midds.& Herts C.A. 12-hour event in 1964
He was in the 3-man team that won the event in 1965, totalling 726 miles 570 yards.
In 1966, he rode 228 miles in the Club 12 hour event.
In 1967, he rode 428 miles in the Club 24 hour event and won the BAR title.
In 1969 he rode 239 miles in the Luton CC 12 hour event, was Open Event BAR and BRCC BAR

In 1971 he rode 425 miles in the North Road 24 hour event

He is pictured here at the event, standing on the small grass island at the junction of roads leading to Moggerhanger, Mox-Hill and Budna.

1973 was a good year for Terry also ...

In 1976 he was in the 3-man winning team for the Luton CC 24 hour event.
Also in 1976, he rode 221 miles in the N&DCA 12 hour event.
Also in 1976 he rode 421 miles in the North Road 24 hour event.
in 1977 he rode 212 miles in the N.&D.C.A. 12-hour National Championship.

Terry had written and edited the Club Magazine for many years, was an active committee member and helped out on most events organised by the club, until recent ill health made him reluctantly take things at a slower pace.

I am sure all who knew Terry will have fond memories to recall, he was a gentle, unassuming gentleman who always looked on the bright side of life and could bring a smile to the face with a witty quip.

Terry's Funeral

Terry's funeral is on Tuesday 14th March at 2pm, at St Peter and St Paul's Flitwick.

Please let me know by Monday 6th March if you can attend.


Afterwards we are gathering at the Cross Keys in Pulloxhill and everyone is welcome to join us.

Rest in peace Terry.

Time Trials...

In addition to our Time Trials, we also take part in Road Racing...

Road Racing...

We also hold a number of social events during the year, as well as events that form part of our annual interclub competition – a way to link with other local clubs in friendly rivalry. Check Facebook and our calendar for details.

For our younger riders, aged 6 to 16, we hold British Cycling approved Go-Ride sessions at Priory Park on Saturdays, which introduce riders to bike handling and the thrill of competition in a safe, off-road environment.

If you want to find out more about the many things we do, why not pop along to the club when we have an event on the go, or check our Fabebook page (link at bottom of this page) , post a question on the forum, or send a message direct to one of our committee members, who will be delighted to help you.

Something to aim for...
Once you have some experience, you may want to aim for a place in our racing teams under the BRRT banner (Beds Road Racing Team). Riders showing promise will be invited to become a team member, provided places are available.

Team members have their own kit to differentiate them from the standard club riders, and take part in more structured training sessions to fine tune their potential.

Here are some of the team at our 2016 Road Race on 8 May at Great Barford

L-R: Kieron Lewis, Daniel Sibley, Matt Donovan, David Cook, Mick Case, Jon Friend, Peter Gell, Simon Norman (Cap.), Patrick Smith, Mark Wenham, Mark Gray, Matthew Cook, Paul French. Thanks to Andy Smith for the photo!

Most of our time-trial events start and finish outside our club-house - pop in afterwards for a tea, coffee, cake etc - service with a smile!

The club has an active social side too, with social rides, BBQ's, quiz nights and an annual awards ceremony to celebrate peoples' successes during the year.
