History

Ampthill Velo Club is a fairly new road cycle club based in Bedfordshire, formed in summer 2013, aimed at getting riders from Bedford, Ampthill, Flitwick, Maulden and the surrounding area, together for a Sunday morning ride.

We are a bunch of local bike enthusiasts who have noticed different groups or individuals riding in the area and thought it would be a good idea to get people together.

Rides

As the club has grown over recent times, there are now two group rides at the weekends. Both rides are planned around a pleasant cafe stop for the obligatory coffee and cake.

Both groups meet at 8:30am in the Market Square of Ampthill town centre. See the Rides page for further information.

Membership

At present, there is no formal membership fee or policy. The group is run informally and if you'd like to attend a ride, simply turn up at the square at the appropriate time. More formal membership and affiliations are currently under review. Whilst there is no obligation, many club members choose to purchase a club cycling jersey to show support for the club.

Jerseys

AVC kit is supplied by Kalas Sportswear (official provider of kit to Team GB). We have a pre-configured eShop that is opened a few times a year when there is enough interest for new orders. If you're interested in purchasing AVC club kit, please use the contact form to express your interest. You don't need to be a complete regular, if you like the look of the kit, we're happy for you to fly the 'AVC flag'.

Website

The website is still in its infancy and is a 'work in progess' as such. More content and pages will be added in the near future. If you have any issues with the site, feature requests, suggestions or anything you'd like to contribute, please send a message using the Contact Form.
