About the Choir Cycle Club
From an idea by baritone Tony Griffiths, a group of 27 cyclists including choristers of Caldicot Male Voice Choir with Friends and Supporters rode the 55 mile Taff Trail from Brecon Canal Basin, past Talybont reservoir in wet and windy conditions to Ponsticill and Cefn Coed Viaduct. They followed the river Taff beyond Merthyr Tydfil and Pontypridd and finally arrived in late afternoon sunshine at the Millenium Centre, Cardiff Bay.
The cyclists then made their way back by bus to Caldicot Choir Hall to a rousing reception by its supporters and a follow-up barbecue and disco.
This event led to the formation of Côr Meibion Caldicot Cycle Club as part of the social side of Caldicot Male Voice Choir. Its aims are to promote social cycling to encourage a healthier lifestyle for its members and in so doing help raise awareness and lend support for deserving, local charities.
Such was the success of the day, and the enthusiasm of the participants, future charity rides where planned for July 2013, looking to support a charity that is close to the hearts of the choir, ‘Victims of Chernobyl Children’s Trust’.
Everybody is welcome to join-in, whether you are a choir member or not – all you need is a bike and a sense of humour.
