For the second year running we are combining our annual meet and drive at the beautiful NT Dinefwr, with an opportunity to raise awareness of road safety issues affecting riders and carriage drivers (Pass Wide and Slow Campaign).  Most of the events taking place are ridden but we want to show that, as carriage drivers, we have the same needs.

The drive is being organised in memory of Donna’s  grandfather who introduced her to driving.  Cecil, who was from Tegryn,  was a member of the BDS and attended many drives. This year it is taking place on the anniversary of Cecil’s birthday

There are various routes on offer to accommodate all levels of fitness – from 5 to 8 miles with additional loops if wanted.  The terrain is fairly flat with only a couple of short gentle hills and the lanes are quiet.  There will be cawl available after.

There will be no charge but donations will be collected for Blood Bikes Wales which Donna’s father is part of.

Please pre-book with Donna or Jenny.  Plenty of parking although lorries over 7.5t may be directed to a different area so please let Donna know in advance
