Charity rides and races

Members of Newport Phoenix were in action this weekend. Congratulations to Olly and Lottie for their road race results, commiserations to Sam (mechanical) and Phil (injured) at the same race.
Also well done to Dave and Stephen for completing the colossal 97-mile platinum route of the annual St. David’s Hospice “Tour de Gwent” ride in very wet conditions, helping to raise funds for a great local facility that helps so many people and families in Newport.

Reliability ride

Some photos from Sunday’s reliability ride, a long-standing traditional early season curtain-raiser. A great turnout comprised two groups riding from Caerleon to Monmouth Garden Centre for some much-needed coffee and cake before the return journey to Caerleon.

Meanwhile, there were no mid-ride cake stops for the rapidly improving youth riders racing in Birmingham on Sunday. Well done both!
