Don’t forget the Teddy Bear Run tomorrow & a farewell to a Biker


Oh no!!!!! I nearly forgot.

Just a reminder, it’s our Christmas Hospital Teddy Bear Run tomorrow. Meeting at 10 am at Caerphilly Mountain Snack Bar, ( which is a snack bar….. On Caerphilly Mountain…) to ride down to the Children’s Casualty Unit at UHW Heath Hospital for approximately 11am.

Then a ride out to Caerwent, & Chepstow to find some food.

Join us if you can, but make sure you bring a little cuddly friend with you to leave at the Hospital.

But now some sad news.

You may have heard that two bikers were killed in separate incidents a few weeks ago. One at Storey Arms on the Brecon Beacons and the other, Lloyd, at Leckwith on the Ely Link Road.

Lloyd was well known to members of the the Dragon Bikers & Welsh Bikers Forums.

A memorial ‘cruise’ has been organised by his friends on the Dragon Bikers & Welsh bikers Forums and they are meeting on Sunday evening at the services at Junction 33- Cardiff West Services at the top of Ely Link Road. Meeting at 7.30 pm if any of you want to attend.

Make sure you are all careful out there!
