A Cycling Club with something for Everyone!
Welcome to Beds Road CC - a cycling club run by its members, for its members, from our club-house in Cardington.
As well as competitions, we also offer a wide range of social cycling events, for cyclists of all abilities.
Reliability Ride #1: 3 March 2024
Our annual Reliability Rides have become more and more popular each year, and we'd love to see you at this year's events!
We welcome riders from all clubs. If you are a BRCC member, remember to bring your membership card (paid up for 2024) for a discount! You can pay your subs with cash on the day.
We will have free soup, rolls, coffee and tea waiting for you when you get back.
: The routes are not signed or marshalled, and we will not have a broom waggon. You are responsible for your own routing and must arrange your own transport home if you have a mechanical issue you can't fix en-route.

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