Cardington Slalom – June 9th and 10th

Let’s Go to Cardington Slalom

What are you doing on Saturday 9th and 10th of June? Why not come and have a fun weekend at Carding Slalom, just outside Bedford?

The slalom is a national ranking Division 2, 3 and 4 (entry level) slalom and is suitable for anybody who has paddled at Harefield of Shepperton. The course was built as the first artificial course in Britain and is a very clever use of a flood relief channel. There is a nice flow along the course to make it interesting.
