Thanks to Dylan I have now uploaded a number of photos of the Club tackling the Pembrokeshire Charity Ride. Some of you might spot a couple of intruders masquerading as Club members wearing our Narberth Dynamos jersey. Having posed for the photos they were not seen again…

Six of us, Kim, Dylan, Graham, Leighton and Jonathan and myself rode together around the 47mile route starting north west towards Porth-gain before heading to St Davids and then back along the coast to Haverfordwest via Newgale and Broadhaven.

The first part of the route was undulating and surprisingly flat on the run in to St Davids. The hilly bit really kicked in climbing out of Newgale but thankfully there was a feed station at this top of the hill. Thankfully no sickly gel sachets but a selection of caramel slices, jaffa cakes, flapjack, wine gums and fruit. It would have been tempting to stay there for the rest of the day.

On the climb out of Norton Haven Graham decided to draft a muck spreader and then wondered why suddenly he has no friends…

Great route, great weather and sensible pace made for an uneventful but very enjoyable ride. We rolled back into the rugby club at around 1.30 just ahead of Nick Brown. It transpired he got the time wrong and started an hour after us!

A very well supported and organised event around a great course that should be a firm fixture on our calender.

Autumn Epic anyone?
