Photos: Cardigan Criterium Racing 2010

Enduring Cardigan-based cycling club Velo Teifi eventually achieved their goal of running a street cycling event in Cardigan; described by one veteran as 'the best circuit I've seen in years.' It's not the first time street racing has taken place in Cardigan (see blog passim) but nonetheless it is an historic event, presaging further events in years to come. Here are some photos.

This is the blog of Paul Williams, Ceredigion resident since 1970. I am an English and Philosphy graduate of what was once known as St David's University College, at Lampeter. I played bass in Dyfed's first punk band, and living in Llandewi Brefi, had a grandstand view of Operation Julie. Eventually, after 2 years playing bass in Brighton's 256th punk band, I returned to Wales to deal in books and then antiques. I've trained and worked as a counsellor, I am a photographer, blog and web designer and I publish the annual Wales Antiques Guide. I am married and a father of one. Apart from my family, my interests include books, maps, Nikon, Yashica and Mamiya film cameras, British Culture 1935 - 1965, Poole pottery, Welsh textiles, and Poster art. My favourite movies include anything by Pressburger and Powell favourite music includes Gene Clark, Gram Parsons, and anything form San Francisco 1965-1970. I am a late convert to 'Kraut Rock'.

  1. Hi
    Great photographs. Dont suppose you would have any pictures from the various other events that took place on the day?

    Regards

    • Thank you Michael.
      I’m sorry to say that’s all. I looked forward to the event ever since Carl Davies’ mooted it (2 years age?). What with family and so on it was ashort day for me.
      I’ll be there next year and hope to have a much larger stock of images.
