‘On Yer Bike’ – AM achieves personal best in 2018 Poppy Ride

Clwyd West AM Darren Millar achieved his personal best time when he took part in this year’s Poppy Ride.

Darren joined the Royal British Legion, veterans and other Assembly Members to race against the clock on an exercise bike in the Senedd last week to mark the Remembrance period in Wales.

Darren, who has taken part in the event every year since its launch, represented his constituency by cycling as far as he could in 5 minutes, with the hope of topping the leaderboard.

He said:

"It was great to take part in the Poppy Ride, to help raise awareness of the Remembrance period in Wales as well as the wonderful work that the Royal British Legion do to support members of the Armed Forces and their families across Wales

“The Poppy Ride is a fun and different way of marking the Remembrance period, alongside all of the other vital local and national events the Legion is involved with at this time, and although I didn’t manage to top the leaderboard, I was very pleased to achieve my personal best time this year.”
