Skylark Ride


32 km / 20 miles
The Skylark Ride crosses the gently rolling countryside in the east of Bedfordshire, typical habitat for the Skylark and one of the few places where the songbird is still commonly seen. The full route is 20 miles (32km) long and there are shorter circuits starting from 6 miles (10km) for the less fit, so there really is something to suit everyone. 80% of the route is off-road, making use of the bridleway network. The road sections, where possible, follow quiet country roads.
