Charity Ride around the Bedfordshire Centres

On Thursday 7th October, Gareth Smith and Simon Cole of Cyril Robinson Lodge took on a charity bike ride for their worshipful master’s chosen charity, the Down’s syndrome Association. They had previously visited Kempston, Ampthill and Biggleswade Masonic Centres, and this ride took in the Luton, Dunstable and Leighton Buzzard Centres, completing the set.

Their target was 100 miles, however they fell slightly short with Gareth’s mammoth attempt reaching 75.5 miles, whilst Simon continued until time and body said enough reaching 91 miles.

This ride has already raised over £400 for the charity, and you can show your support by donating here;

This is all in training for their Bedford to Brussels ride which is planned for April next year to raise funds for our 2026 Festival.
