Last month Reg Braddick Cycles of Cardiff shut.

Following the retirement of its managing director, due to ill health, the shop closed after 70 years of trading.

The shop was opened in 1945 by Welsh racing cyclist Reginald Kenneth Braddick. He had represented Wales at the 1938 British Empire Games in Sydney and won the 1944 NCU national road championship. Braddick was also a founder of the Cardiff Ajax Cycling Club.

A statement on the shop's site reads:

"It is with sadness that we inform you as of this date we will be shutting our doors after 70 years.

The decision has been taken due to the retirement of our Managing Director through ill health.

We thank you all for your support over the years and wish you many happy miles of cycling to come.

See you on the trails! :-)"
