Last Friday saw Aberystwyth get taken over by the Halfords bike race that led the cyclists around the seafront and then inland to Academy and back down to the pier. Me and Stuart were placed on the brutal hairpin of “South Beach” that saw many racers take the corner too quickly, loose traction and slide into the barrier.
The race was broadcast on ITV4 today, and I managed to find myself (in the high visibility jacket) a few times in the show:
Also had the May Ball duty on the 11th of May where we were on duty from from around 7pm-ish until 4am in the morning. A relatively quiet duty, mainly just applying plasters for rubbing shoes, but fun nonetheless as it was a bit different.
