    It is the Pembrokeshire Charity Ride on Sunday starting from Haverfordwest Rugby Club. Suggest we should be supporting this local event!


    I am planning to cycle down and ride this event. Anyone else want to ride down with me meet at bloomfield at 7.30 am. I assume the ride starts at 9?


    I can’t I’m afraid, on call this weekend. Stay safe you guys! Have a good ride!


    I have entered & plan to ride up – presuming you are still going Andrew – bike alright after pheasant flucking experience


    They are desperate for marshals so if any of you are able to please contact the organiser ASAP? Thanks.


    I have entered, going to drive to HW though. See ya’ll there.


    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?


    Email from Dorian Rees:

    Hi All

    Many thanks for supporting the Pembs Charity Bike Ride last Sunday and for

    the positive feedback on your forum, 470 riders took part on the day and we

    have raised over £10,000 so far with some money still coming in, I have

    Andrew for the voucher for the raffle. Hope to see you again next year!

    Thanks, Dorian
