A RECORD IttDE.-I)tii-in- the summer months attempts have been made by the cyclists of this town to establish records of covering the ground from Lampeter to Llanybyther, via Cwmann and Ileii- carreg, and home, via Llanwllen and Pwllgrafel, a distance of 111 miles. In July last Mr. E. P. Edwards, Eurfaen Hall, a very promising young rider, rode the distance in 40 minutes, whilst Mr. Tommie Bridgewater, a member of the Lampeter Cycling Club, in the early part of August last reduced the beforementioned record to 35 minutes.
