Il Giro Di Pembrokeshire

92 cyclists enjoyed the sunshine as they took part in Il Giro Di Pembrokeshire, Narberth and Whitland Rotary Club’s rotary ride event, on Sunday 1st September for Prostate Cymru and other rotary charities. Amongst the 92 participants were members of local cycling clubs such as Narberth Dynamos, Haverfordwest Hornets and Tenby Cycling Club.

Named after the famous Italian cycle race, the Giro d’Italia, famed for its steep and difficult climbs, the Pembrokeshire ride incorporates some of the county’s hills to create challenging rides. This year there were four routes for participants to choose from: 10, 27, 50 and 75 miles. The routes increase in difficulty as the mileage increases, with more hills and challenges for the cyclists to face. From the family friendly 10 mile route to the new 75 mile route including the infamous “Cake Hill”, the rotary ride event had something for everyone.

The rides began at the Bloomfield Centre in Narberth and finished at the Creselly Arms in Cresswell Quay where participants enjoyed food courtesy of the restaurant. The club would like to extend their thanks to Colin and John of the Cresselly Arms, the Bloomfield Centre in Narberth, organiser David Haward, the outriders James and Huw and members of the rotary club for marshalling and other assistance on the day.
