Beds Road Raciong Team Road Race 2020

OBITUARY: Trevor Hughes 26 April 2019


It is with great sorrow that we today lost a great friend, Trevor Hughes, due to a catastrophic heart attack suffered on 16th April.

We offer our heartfelt condolences to Trevor's family and many friends.

Trevor was well known in the world of cycling, having been Chief Judge for the Tour of Britain for many years, as well as for the London Olympics road cycling events.

Trevor also supported many grass roots cycling events and always had valuable words of advice for those coming into the sport.

Trevor's funeral will be held on 21st May at 11:30, at the Norse Road Crematorium in Bedford.

Rest in peace Trevor.

We offer something for everyone, from leisurely rides to top level competition. From 6 to 96, if you like to ride a bike and want to develop your enjoyment and skills, why not join us?

New to cycling? Joining Beds Road CC is a great way to meet like-minded people, add some structure to your riding, and get guidance from experienced riders. As a starting point, why not try our Sunday social rides?

We have rides for all abilities with varying distances. Other rides are organised by members during the week – check our FB page for details - see FB link at bottom of page.

Want to get fitter and stronger? During the winter we run turbo sessions on a Thursday night from the clubhouse in Cardington, check our facebook page for details, link at bottom of page.

From April, test yourself in a time trial by joining the Evening-League on Thursdays, or our popular SPOCO series on Sunday mornings, all of which are open to all abilities, with tea, cake, and sympathy in the clubhouse afterwards.

You never know, you may enjoy this form of challenge so much you want to specialise in Time Trials.

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.



Our Kit...



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.
