Sponsored cycle ride raises more than £3,000 for schools in Tanzania

On Wednesday June 23rd Rotary Bridgend organised a Mumbles to Bridgend 50km sponsored cycle ride in aid of much needed water and sanitation projects

The cyclists, five Rotarians from Bridgend, The President of Rotary Cowbridge, Head Teacher of Trelales Primary School and four local riders, set off from Mumbles on a sunny warm day, cheered off by Rotary Bridgend President William Williams and a very enthusiastic support team of Rotarians and family. 

The first section Mumbles to Aberavon followed the coastal cycle track, a pleasant and easy going section with the incentive of a feed stop on Aberavon promenade manned by the support team.

The second section Aberavon to Bridgend was a little more strenuous with several steep or long inclines, ensuring the riders finished with a healthy appetite and in need of refreshments.

The riders were greeted by Rotarian Carwyn Jones, former First Minister of Wales, The Rotary Bridgend President William and a large group of followers at The Mackworth Arms in Laleston, where landlord Ricky was good enough to put on a buffet for all involved.

Rotary Bridgend would like to thank all those who took part, riders, supporters and sponsors. The projects are assisting one of the aims of Rotary Foundation.
