Posted on Leave a commentPosted in bikes, cycling, equipment, routes

Welsh writer and poet Dave Lewis has just completed a week-long cycle across the north of England. He covered 275 miles, completed two iconic cycling trails: Hadrian’s Cycleway and the Sea to Sea / Coast to Coast (C2C) and has just published a book of his adventures. In the past Dave has cycled the famous Land’s End to John o’ Groats challenge (back in 2005) and also created a circuit of Wales, after which he set up ‘Wales Trails’ in 2016. ‘Dave’s third cycling adventure is another little gem for fans of amateur cycling memoirs. Following on from the success […]

As of March, the ride will become a permanent fixture.  The plan is to do the ride once a month, every month, on the first Sunday of the month. Therefore the first ride will take place on Sunday 3rd March (rain or shine) starting at 11:30am and hopefully finishing […]

The Taff Trail is part of the National Cycle Network (Route 8) and runs for 55 miles (89 km) between Cardiff Bay and the Brecon Beacons National Park. Passing through the towns of Pontypridd and Merthyr Tydfil it is named because it follows the course of the River Taff.  Along much of its length, it follows the National Cycle Network Route 8 (Lôn Las Cymru) that continues to Holyhead, and is mostly off-road. Passing through a string of small towns and villages, the Taff Trail offers a healthy and low-cost way to commute to work or university on bike or […]
