Rotary Ride 2016

A number of rotary clubs in Wales have held rotary rides for Prostate Cymru. Newport Uskmouth Rotary and Satellite Club was the first club to hold theirs on Saturday 18th June in Magor, Gwent. Around 50 people, children and adults, took to their bikes and chose to ride either a five mile route through Redwick village or an eighteen mile route through Redwick, Goldcliff and Nash. The ride raised approximately £1000 for the charity.

Three clubs held their rotary rides on Father’s Day itself, Sunday 19th June. In South East Wales, Cwmbran Vale Rotary Club raised £150 at their locally held ride. Haverfordwest Rotary Club organised an eighteen mile ride from Haverfordwest to Fishguard with the help of the Haverfordwest Hornets Cycling Club. Seventeen people braved the pouring rain to complete the ride and raised £200. The club wish to thank Mikes Bikes who supplied a maintenance vehicle to shadow the riders along the route.

Members of Fishguard & Goodwick Rotary Club have continued their friendship and twinning with the Rotary Club of Wexford, Ireland. The club held a joint ride with the Rotary Club of Wexford on Sunday 19th June with the funds being split between Prostate Cymru and the Irish Cancer Society. The team cycled 80km on a static exercise bike on a Stena Line ferry from Fishguard to Rosslare. Both clubs would like to thank Stena Line for their support for the second consecutive year.

Prostate Cymru’s Chairman Andy Thomas joined cyclists on Sunday 26th June for Cardiff Breakfast Rotary Club’s ride. The event, kindly sponsored once again by Tom Prichard Contracting Ltd, has raised approximately £500. Participants had a choice of either a twenty one or forty six mile route starting and finishing at Whitchurch Rugby and Social Club, Cardiff.

Cefn Sidan Rotary Club teamed up with Pembrey and Burry Port Cycling Club to hold their rotary ride at Pembrey Motor Circuit on Sunday 24th July. Families and individual riders cycled the racetrack with some cyclists embracing the ‘Hare & Tortoise’ fancy dress theme.
