Obituary: Richard 'Dickie' Daniells
We were deeply saddened to hear of the passing of Richard 'Dickie' Daniells, following a road traffic accident on 14 June 2022, whilst he was cycling in his home town of Rothwell.
Dickie was a constant source of energy and enthusiasm in all he did for cycling, especially in his involvement with the N&DCA Time Trial series.
We offer our heartfelt condolences to his family, friends and all who knew him.
May he rest in peace.
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.
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.
