Ever Wondered...
what it feels like to first join up with us?  Read Simon's account of First Contact with Velo Teifi - the fears, the preconceptions and the general 'newby' feeling when considering a first ride with a cycling club.  Obviously, Simon's experience was wholly pleasant, because we're all such nice, friendly, moral, upstanding citizens.  Ahem.

Simon's view

The Club Forum has a new layout - have you seen it yet?  Get in there and share some love.  Or just abuse everyone - your choice.


Sunday, 13th April.  For the baker’s dozen that included a visiting cycling journo and frame-builder extraordinaire, the morning’s ride was all about getting back in time for the Hell of the North and club-subsidised curry.  Any normal club would have cut the route short and ensured a pleasant tootle in the spring sunshine.  But this isn’t a normal club.  Frenetic, frantic and frazzled are the words of the day... And we’re off mornin' Tommy K via the Mormon climb skirting Capel Iwan beard’s looking great Ifan looping back to the windmills nice pull Yan then on up to Maudlands mind the horses Pete before looping back towards Trelech time trialling with the Javlar then once Salvo remembered the route down into Cwm Cych at ludicrous speed dodging the dog slash walkers slash walkers’ sticks on through the valley nice new tarmac clicking nicely Wayne past the Nag’s up the hill segment time Glyn and down to Llechryd mind the hairpin stopping at the bridge... And relax.  A three-way split saw the lung-busting continue to ensure showers, shaves and sh... ablutions were compelted in time to make the 1300hrs rendezvous in the Seven Stars.  What a day.  And Chapeau! Niki Terpstra – nearly as committed as our morning ride; perhaps the promise of beer and curry is the trick we’ve been missing all these years?
