On Colwyn's Wednesday lunch stop Maurice Clarke congratulates Glyn Evans on his 80th birthday

     Your website manager and septuagenarian Maurice Clarke is seen here congratulating CTC Cymru's Glyn Evans of Old Colwyn upon attaining his 'Big 8 Zero'

     A former firearms specialist with North Wales Police, Glyn is still capable of an explosive turn of speed. His secret of longevity and good health?

Betty and Gilbert Marshall of Berwyn guest house, Rhyl, outside Hughes Cycles showing off the new publication ON YER BIKE      'We came from South Africa to Rhyl for business reasons', say Betty and Gilbert Marshall of Berwyn Guest House, River Street, Rhyl. 'But we remain here mainly because of the coastal cycle path. We've taken our bikes to Spain, but it's not a patch on what is on offer here. We have many guests staying with us who think it's great. Why aren't the cycle paths promoted more?'

     Betty and Gilbert are seen here outside Hughes Cycles where Gilbert has just bought a new bike. Betty is showing off the new freebie, ON YER BIKE, published jointly by Denbighshire, Flintshire and Wrexham.


Postman who is not impressed with the case for cycle helmets     Paul Wilson of Old Colwyn isn't impressed by the case for cycle helmets. He'll wear one reluctantly if it becomes a condition of employment. But he says he'll take it off as soon as his shift ends.
