Wootton Village Hall – Church Road,
Wootton, Bedford MK43 9EU
Beds & Bucks
60 Miler or 74 Miler
£19.50


Two distances: The 60 Miler & The 74 Miler based on a main route which takes in some of the best scenery and slopes Beds and Bucks have to offer.

The 74
The route – Launch
Starting in Wootton, just southwest of Bedford we first head north on a warm up loop through Bromham and Carlton. After that it’s southbound and at 30 miles the real fun begins! Bow Brickhill is not for the faint-hearted but leads to some beautiful scenery. Shortly afterwards we head across the deer park in Woburn Abbey then its back over the M1 and the next lump – Sundon at 42 miles. We stay high to the food stop at Barton Village Hall then turn north to Barton and over to Flitwick before a great descent past the Millbrook test track. Just as we catch sight of home there’s a sting in the tail and we turn toward the last big ascent of the day – Lidlington. A quick cruise down the A507 and then it’s back through Brogborough and a long superfast descent down past the lake. A few more more miles and we’re home to Wootton for well-earned tea and cakes. There’s also massage!

All riders receive a time for the ride.

The 60
The route – Launch
This route is based on the 74 but misses out Lidlington Hill towards the end. More suitable for those who want to get round in one and don’t fancy that sting in the tail…
See the map for details.


PLEASE NOTE: There’s a 7 hour limit on both routes
