23rd February

 We are sad to announce the death of David ( Dai ) Evas.

David first joined the Club in the 1950's and is well known to long standing members. In later years he rode regularly in the Vale of Glamorgan with a few others and enjoyed his cafe stops. Although he always looked trim and fit, ill health restricted his activities in the last couple of years while he underwent treatment for cancer. Although he appeared to be in better health later in 2014, he had been in hospital again during the past month and finally lost the battle. Our thoughts are with his family and friends.

These photos have been supplied by Tony Gammon and feature riders from the 1950's. A young Tony is top centre in the photo alongside and enjoying the company of female members below !. Dai Plaza had a cycle shop alongside the entrance to the Plaza theatre in the now empty space to the right of the Welcome Inn. Members like Chris Clements and Dave Roberts spent many hours there in what was a second clubroom to young members.  Len and Lil Jenkins still live in Clydach Vale. Len was a famous long distance champion and also set road records with Neville Yeo, another excellent long distance rider and grandfather of Ross. Gwyn Thomas was a top roadman who competed in the Tour of Britain.
