RAIN failed to dampen the spirits of 50 cyclists who took part in the recent charity ride organised by the Rotary Club of Narberth and Whitland. The family-friendly event was raising money for Prostate Cymru and the Tenovus Closer to Home Appeal. The cyclists assembled at Bloomfield Community Centre, Narberth and had a choice of three routes - ten, 27 or 50 miles. The most popular route was the 27-miler, with a few heroes managing the 50-mile ride. The 10-mile route was enjoyed by families, with dads helping their children get up the few hills in Canaston Woods. President Tony Ensom thanked the four Blood Bikers who supported as outriders. At the end of the ride, all the cyclists met up at the Cresselly Arms, Cresswell Quay. Landlords Colin and John Evans were excellent hosts, and provided a welcome two-course buffet lunch with appropriate refreshments for all age-groups. The organiser of the ride, past president David Haward - who is a member of the Narberth Dynamos Cycling Club - thanked Burns Building Company for sponsoring the Bloomfield Community Centre bus as the shuttle service to and from Cresswell Quay.
