Bedford’s Closed Road Cycle Event - Sunday 19th June 2016

A closed road event, that starts in the iconic Bedford Park and winds past the town's beautiful riverside setting and into the wonderful Bedfordshire countryside, before finishing up back in Bedford Park 80 Kilometres later

With the help of our Elected Mayor of Bedford Dave Hodgsonwe have created a unique closed road event which begins and ends in the historic market town of Bedford.

Starting in Bedford Park, the route passes the imposing tree-lined villas of De Parys Avenue before turning along Bedford’s famed embankment and climbing Cleat Hill into the undulating countryside and villages of North Bedfordshire.

If there is any misapprehension that our beautiful county is lacking in contours these will soon disappear as you traverse the characterful North Bedfordshire villages of Ravensden, Renhold, Wilden, Colmworth, Swineshead, Riseley, Keysoe and Thurleigh before returning to Bedford Park.  


Bedford's first ever Closed Road event
Start from 07:00 in timed grouped waves 
Maximum entries of 2,500 cyclists.
Entry Fee £40.00
British Cycling Junior Members under 16 £15

In September of each year, the Rotary Club of Bedford Park jointly organise the Extramile Challenges, which is a cycle ride over 500 miles through France or Germany. This annual event regularly raises around £100,000 for local and national charities and has raised well over £1 Million since it began in 2003. Some of the money raised by the club goes towards helping local athletes.

The Rotary Club of Bedford Park have, over many years supported those in their sporting endeavours and were the Rotary Club that supported the Olympic Gold medallist Greg Rutherford in the years leading up to his record jump. We are currently supporting two potential future Olympians in their fields of gymnastics & sailing.
