Velothon VIP

Today was the Wales Velothon a, 140 km (87 mile) cycle ride beginning in Cardiff and going through the counties of Caerphilly, Torfaen, Monmouthshire and Newport before finishing back in Cardiff town centre.

As the route goes through Torfaen, The Mayor and by extension I as her consort were invited to attend the race at the start/ finish line in the VIP section, and as I love going to the VIP and fancy civic functions I was more than happy to attend.

VIP Pass

Aside from the massive heat it was fantastic to spend a day doing something out of the ordinary and get to be present at an event that means a lot for my country, and sees people from all over the world come to take part, with people coming from as far as Trinidad to compete. And I must say that in the VIP tent was one of the nicest buffets I’ve had since starting as Mayor’s Consort (not that I keep score. Honest.)
