Fun & Interesting Facts

Biggleswade was the home of cyclist and inventor Daniel Albone, who invented the ‘Ivel Safety Bicycle’ – the first pedal cycle with two equal-sized wheels we know today rather than the original penny-farthing.

As you drift up, up and away from Biggleswade over the picturesque countryside, you can take in the sites of beautiful surrounding villages like Sutton, Sandy and Potton.

Depending on which way the wind takes your adventure, you may even float over Woburn Abbey - this stunning estate with its gardens and deer park is truly best appreciated from the skies.

You could even spot the historic city of Cambridge in the distance.
