This cycle ride visits the North Bedfordshire village of Little Staughton. It takes a pleasant route out of St Neots and follows a
little known tributary of the Ouse - the river Kym - for some way before taking us to Grafham Water and then visiting the
Staughtons. It then returns over some higher ground offering some fine panoramic views. Look out for the World War II airfield at Little Staughton from which two pilots won Victoria Crosses - and the nearby churchyard which has links with other aviators. Some alternative short cuts are offered, which are as pleasant as the main ride.
From Bedford, take the A428 west until the A1. Then take the A1 north and take the B1048, then the B1428 into the centre of St Neots.
Car parking is available in the town centre and the railway station. Visitors arriving from the south and west by car, may park at the Riverside car park on the west side of the Ouse. The Market Place is just over the bridge.
Start Description: The ride can start from either of two points in St Neots: the railway station for those who arrive by rail, or the Market Place in the centre of town.
