1. Saturday mornings

Event Information

Race events will be located at the BFCC training area. All riders are welcome to participate. Outrides: the details of location meeting points will be published on FaceBook and the BFCC Website. Bedgebury Club Rides: these are informal/all ability Club rides around the red route of Bedgebury Forest. Meeting point is by the cycle bike wash area and rides leave at 10am. All Events: It’s important to check Friday night and again Saturday mornings for any outride or Club event updates, as these are subject to late changes due to weather or illness.

For club rides, we meet at the bike wash to set off on the regular Bedgebury red route at 10:00.  We’ll usually be back at the car park just before 12:00 before relaxing by the lake for refreshments and a chat. Non club members are welcome but you’ll need a moderate level of fitness and be capable of riding some fairly bumpy trails. Please make sure your bike is well maintained and perhaps carry a spare inner tube plus cycle pump and a puncture repair kit. These rides are not particularly fast paced and we’ll stop for a breather and for any slower riders to catch up at many points around the 14km single track loop.

In addition to the weekly Saturday rides, different groups of members regularly go on out rides to various locations. In the past year we have been to Friston Forest, the South Downs, Swinley Forest, Surrey Hills and Wales. For the more local rides, we often synchronise with the advanced juniors so we are all there together, then after our separate rides we meet for tea and cake.

As well as official rides assorted groups often head out to a different location on a Sunday. The rides are informal and vary in distance and terrain depending on location and how well we know the area. Sometimes we just go to explore a new area or make contact with local riders who can show us some new trails.

As well as outrides and racing the club also has social events throughout the year including barbecues and a fancy dress Christmas ride. Events planned for the future also include a Halloween fancy dress night ride and an Easter Egg hunt. The best way to find out what is coming up is to come along to a Saturday or Wednesday ride or trail build and get to know some of the members or keep an eye on the website or Facebook pages for updates.
