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.
