Cardigan Street Race

The Street Race is starting to really take shape. Posters are back from the printers and street closures are approved for the race circuit.

So yesterday, we all combed our hair to present a £2000 cheque to Velo Teifi, our way of getting involved to kickstart the race.

It's guaranteed to be an action-packed event acting as the final in the Welsh National Criterium Championships. The route is going to be fast, with the best riders in Wales coming to Cardigan to race at speeds of up to 40mph through the town centre.

The streets may be closed, but the race is very much open. howies will be racing for the coveted "Fastest Trader in the West" title and if you're interested in breaking the speed limit through town, you'd better get your entry form to get involved.

The day's not just for racers. If you can help marshal, set up or pack up, please get in touch with event organisers Velo Teifi.

There are also plenty of great spots along the route to watch and cheer riders along.
