We are a cycling club based in Ampthill and Luton, Bedfordshire of about 120 members. The club is involved in time trialling, cyclo-cross, road and track racing, social activities, youth hostelling weekends and other events. We provide on and off-road activities under the supervision of experienced cyclists and qualified coaches and work with local schools to deliver Go-Ride cycling activities following the British Cycling plan. If you want to ride with an experienced yet sociable band of riders, who will still wait for you if you puncture, then ride with the Icknield. Come along to one of our Tuesday evening club nights or turn up at a club run to find out more. We welcome new members whether experienced or new to the sport of cycling. The Club room at Redborne Upper School in Ampthill provides opportunities for indoor training under the supervision of our qualified coaches whilst the club time trial courses which we use from April are just 5 minutes ride away.
