Sandy cadets on the pedals

Cycle RideOn Saturday 8th August, a group of Air Cadets and staff from 22 (Sandy) Squadron undertook an 18 mile cycle ride, as part of their summer training program.

The day took the cadets from Sandy to Priory Park in Bedford, and up to Cardington, then back onto the cycle path to Sandy. The cadets were tested throughout the day on their map reading and navigation skills, in preparation for their upcoming Duke of Edinburgh’s Award expeditions.

Cadet Adam Holloway (15) said “It was a really fun day and good exercise. Map reading while cycle was a new experience, as you can’t look at the map on the move. Luckily we only got lost once. Definitely want to do this again”.
