    Pedalling the Tracks


Meeting Point:  Standing Stones, Linford Manor, Great Linford – 11am and 2pm

Before the Redways, there were Railways.  Before the bicycles, there were trains.  Join us on a cycling adventure as we pedal the old railway line (between Linford Manor and Newport Pagnell) exploring the sights, sounds and surroundings of the old tracks.

The Trainline Tracers will guide you on your journey – a group of cycling encyclopedias who’ll tell you all about where you are, where you’re going and what other paths you could follow. Along the way, you’ll be invited to take a breather as the Trainline Tracers bring different locations to life with the help of residents past, present and future.

Pedalling The Tracks is a participatory dance work, mixing professionals with performers from the local community and local schools. Using the transformation from Railway to Redway as inspiration, this promenade work will invite audience members to travel the route in conjunction with performers learning all about the far reaching Redways and their history.

Performances will begin at the meeting point, the Standing Stones at Linford Manor at 11am and 2pm. Performances will take place in Great Linford and then the M1 bridge over the redway at Newport Pagnell.

Audiences will be invited to the next site at the end of each section of the performance and will travel along the redways with the pros (if they want to) – we’ll offer times that the next section starts for people to work to. The performance is estimated to last between 1.5 and 2 hours (including transferring between sites).


We’re looking for 20 participants male or female, aged between 7 and 700 who are passionate about performing. No dance experience necessary. Go to for more details and information on how to apply.
