BEDFORD & COUNTY AC
The Bedford 6 course is on the cycle path that runs east from Bedford towards Sandy. The start and finish are just inside the entrance to Priory Country Park. The course runs east along the path towards the village of Willington and turns left just before “Danish Camp”. It then follows the river back upstream towards Bedford. There are two hills where the course crosses the dual carriage way on the way out and back. The course is on tarmac except for ~ 0.5 mile before the mile 2 marker which is on firm gravel.
The course is not spectator friendly as there are few places that can be approached other than on foot or bike. Spectators can get to the Start/Finish area. Those with cars can catch the race pass behind the village of Willington, accessed via a number of footpaths from the village.
