The Greensand Cycle Ride


The Greensand Cycle Ride is a cycle route along the attractive hills of Bedfordshire’s Greensand Ridge. It follows mainly quiet country lanes with some more challenging, off-road sections as alternatives. The route runs between Leighton Buzzard and Sandy and can be ridden in either direction. Both towns can be accessed by train.

The ride can be ridden in one day but you may prefer to split it into four shorter sections as described in each leaflet.
