Bedford Rowing Club row on the River Great Ouse through the centre of the town. Our fleet of boats consists of a complete range of eights, fours, pairs, doubles and single sculls, all of which we race in regattas throughout the UK all year round. In recent years, we have added a fleet of more stable boats which get a lot of use by our Explore Rowing squads.  We have a selection of training facilities including a weights gym, spin bikes and a Concept 2 rowing machine room; You can train at your own pace as an individual, or as a group under the eye of our coaches. The club has a great social side and we run various events throughout the year both on and off the water. We run regular taster sessions and learn to row courses.  For details of these, please email explorerowing@bedfordrowing.co.uk.
