Pendine was packed with people over the weekend as two major events took place in thevillage. The fifth annual daffodil ride was taking place alongside motocross on the beach. Thedaffodil run gets more entrants each year and has become a very popular entry in the diary ofany self-respecting cyclist. Each year the event raises money for charity and this year allmonies raised will go to the Carmarthenshire Children’s Centre. The 43-mile ride takes thecyclists through some of the most beautiful countryside in Wales and is a real tourism boosterfor the area. The Motocross is a relatively recent addition to events in Pendine although motorcycle racing has a long history on the beach. Riders young and old took to the track, which had jumps built in along the way. It was a wonderful frenzy of roaring engines, petrol and oil fumes and exciting races. There were plenty of spectators young and old lining the beach wall following all the action. Pendine has seen resurgence in visitor numbers as a result of so many events organised by individuals and clubs within the area. With so many towns struggling to attract visitors the staging of events catering for sport and family entertainment seem to be providing a solution. The best events seem to be those, which are organised by small groups and individuals who are passionate about their town or village and have skills in this area. They usually operate on a minimal budget too.
