“Dave Gudgin 25”
1U/25 is a 25 miles course, based around Southill, Beds.  This course is also used for the 2-Up Team TT (riding as a team of 2, you will be given the time of the second rider in your team to cross the finish line so you need to work together to get a good time) and the Medium Gear Competition (the limitation is that your bike cannot have a gear ratio higher than 72 inches – see technical explanation.

Spring Hilly/ Autumn Hilly (6Z/10)
This is an 18.4 miles course covering 2 laps of a 9.2 miles circuit around Whitwell and St. Paul’s Walden. It’s a good marker for form at the start of the season and interesting to see if one can beat one’s time come the Autumn after a season of testing.

Interclub 30
1U/30 is a 30 miles course similar to the Dave Gudgin 25 but with an extra dog leg turn before Ireland and the finish on the long road towards Stanford rather than through the woods between Old Warden and Southill:
