Thanks to everyone who turned up and rode in wet conditions on Saturday for the Club’s 90th ride. Getting out on the bikes and riding in those conditions sums up the spirit and attitude of the club. Good times.
This month, 90 years ago, the founding members would have gone out together for their first ride as an established and legitimate club. It was a proud moment for us to have recognised this and to continue as they intended.
Thanks to Paul Heyes for his summary
“Fantastic turn out today for the club’s 90th Anniversary Ride – 90km loop of one of the clubs most popular routes. 20 of us left Gyffin for a gentle (wet 💦) spin up the valley to Betws. We briefly stopped outside the Spinnaker hoping to see others, with no one in sight we pushed on up to Siabod for tea, beans, eggs & scones! Wet & wild conditions lay ahead as we headed over the Ffrancon & down into Bethesda. Here the rain stopped & the route took us over Rachub, picking up the lanes & back along the coast. We finished with a pint in the Liverpool Arms and some great stories from Ivor. Great ride today in soggy conditions, made all the better by those who rode. Thanks to Matt for organising. 🏴💦🍰🚴♂️🌿☕️🍌🍺”
and Gary Eisenhauer for the two pics in this post.
Great to see our elder statesman Ivor Wild passing the baton on to the youngest rider on the day,
