The club was founded in 1982 by three friends: Steve Gregson, Gerald Asperassa and Derek Pearson. They often rode together in the evenings and, in the absence of any club west of Carmarthen, founded their own cycling club that they called The Pembrokeshire Velo. They started racing, predominantly time trials to start. As they did their results and reputation quickly grew both locally, and amongst the South Wales’ cycling clubs establishment. New members joined them in 1984, including current members Derek Pugh and Paul Colman. Derek’s son Karl joined as the first junior, and his wife Jean and their daughter Judith. Terry Francis joined along with his son Dave, Sarah Gambold was Welsh Girls track Champion, age 13. Andrew and Paul Toft riding with Paul Colman won the Welsh 12 hour team award with 240, 245 and 246 miles on road bikes for the first time in 1986, the start of multiple trips to the top step for members of the club competing in the longer distance Welsh Championship time trials, particularly the 12 hour.
