About our Retro Bike Rides

  • Our inaugural event ‘Retro Ride’ is an old school charity fundraising bike ride to raise money for St David’s Hospice Care in Memory of  our great supporter Mr Jeff Waite.


About Jeff

Jeff was a dedicated supporter of St David’s Hospice Care and was always a regular participant on our various charity bike rides. Jeff was always one of the first to sign up to our numerous rides throughout the year including our annual Sand to City. Jeff was one of life’s gentlemen, he was always calm, polite with a generous manner although he always had that little glint in his eye.

Jeff was just 50 years of age when he passed and therefore came as a great shock to family & friends. Jeff was involved in many local clubs such as the City of Newport Swimming Club and Newport Social Cycling.

We want to remember Jeff and thought this was a fitting tribute and would urge you to get involved.

Why Retro Bike Ride

  • On our two day charity bike ride ‘Sand to City’ when we first met Jeff he turned up  with the heaviest, oldest mountain bike to complete 160 miles over two days and it was something we always joked about with him until finally he bought himself a modern, lightweight version


  • Riders are encouraged to attend on old bikes that they can get their hands on, from Choppers to Grifters
  • Old bikes, preferred but not essential.
  • New bikes are obviously welcome also
  • It’s the taking part, raising funds and remembering Jeff
