Long Distance Routes

Ouse Valley Way is a 150 mile promoted route starting in Northamptonshire and running through Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Norfolk to the sea at King's Lynn.
From Turvey at the Northants border the route winds in large loops around a number of peaceful villages to Bedford. The Way then follows mostly hard surfaces to Willington and Roxton. Here the route diverts away from the river through the villages of Chawston and Wyboston before reaching Eaton Socon in Cambridgeshire.


Stevington Country Walk

This is a 3 mile walk along the former Bedford - Northampton railway between Bromham and Stevington having scenic views over the rural Ouse Valley and links with Stevington Windmill.

Cycling in the Countryside

Bedfordshire is ideal for cycling and a leaflet, produced with assistance from the Cyclists Touring Club (new window), gives details of circular routes around some of the county's most attractive areas, using quiet country roads and off-road cycle paths. Most of the routes link in with urban areas or country parks.

Bedford to Sandy Country Way (National Cycle Way Route 51)

The Country Way (Part of NCN 51) follows the former Bedford to Sandy railway line.  Starting from the Embankment, Bedford the route passes Priory Country Park, the Bedford River Valley Park, Danish Camp, Wilington and onto Sandy. It is open to cyclists, wheelchair users and walkers between Bedford and Sandy and to horse riders between Bedford and Church End, Willington.
The Country Way forms part of the National Cycle Way Network and is designated NCN 51. This route ultimately links Oxford to Cambridge via Milton Keynes and Bedford.
