Aberystwyth Street Cycle Race 2011

The televised Halfords Tour Series street cycle race came to Aberystwyth on Thursday with professional cycle racers, including some expecting to be in the Olympics, competing around a tight track along the Prom and through the old town. Cold, gale force winds hampered the event, with the main race having to be shortened. However, although those from further afield were put off by the weather, there was a good turnout of  local people to watch what turned out to be a really spectacular event for the town. Televised on ITV 4, The race, organised by the Ystwyth Cycle Club, will be returning to Aberystwyth again next year.

  1. Sorry, nothing to do with cycling, but what's happened to the Xmas Market? Any news, I remember last time when the farmers market was threatened before that they wanted to do it themselves. Can't it be run without the frills Facepainting etc
