Guest Post: Helmet cam footage wanted for a BBC feature –by @stevecastle

Calling all helmet cam users! I have a request for you… When I am not out riding my bike, I work as a TV sound engineer. I was recently contacted by a producer at BBC Wales whom I have worked with on numerous occasions asking if I or any of the other guys I work … Continue reading Guest Post: Helmet cam footage wanted for a BBC feature –by @stevecastle

Guest Post: Spanish Practices –by Chris Roberts

Valencia

Some interesting things are happening with cycling in Valencia, Spain’s third largest city.  Can we learn from them? Imagine a city where every week you come across a new stretch of cycle infrastructure - and not just red paint but quality segregated bike lanes - well that’s Valencia at the moment. Anillo Ciclista I moved … Continue reading Guest Post: Spanish Practices –by Chris Roberts

Guest Post: Active Travel Conference 2017 –by @beicwrtaff

Last Thursday I found myself at the Active Travel Conference held here in Cardiff. According to the blurb the conference would “equip practitioners who are involved in the implementation of the Active Travel Act with best practice tools and knowledge.

Guest Post: Not another 100 Climbs – by @GarethEnticott

I have a confession. I don't like the series of 100 Greatest Climbs books, particularly the new Wales book. Its nothing personal, but it's a couple of things. Increasingly I don't like the fetishisation of the climb. It might work in the Alps where riding up the Galibier might take most of your day, but … Continue reading Guest Post: Not another 100 Climbs – by @GarethEnticott

Guest Post: Wheel Women’s First Ride – by Lusi Lawler

Get on your bikes and ride! On Saturday 14th January 25 women and girls took to Cardiff on two wheels.

Guest Post: We need to talk about Hailey Park –by @beicwrtaff

You might have missed it but Hailey Park has been in the news again. The Western Mail/Wales Online ran an inflammatory story that seems to have been based on a comment left on a Facebook page. The thrust of the story is that someone wants a speed limit for cyclists on the Taff Trail through Hailey Park. … Continue reading Guest Post: We need to talk about Hailey Park –by @beicwrtaff

Guest Post! RideLondon 2016 – by Steve Castle

'We're not doing this again', said my wife as she caught me wincing as I lifted my fully packed bike bag for the first time - before we'd even left the house... Last year I rather rashly entered myself for the now annual Prudential Ride London 100. It was championed by Boris as a legacy … Continue reading Guest Post! RideLondon 2016 – by Steve Castle

Guest Post: Nick’s 5km Selfie –by Nick Russill (@nickruss)

Three things I enjoy very much are riding bikes, photography and exploring the landscapes I find myself in. Living in Wales and partly growing up in Pembrokeshire means I have an almost limitless menu of opportunities to choose from, whatever the weather. On this particular occasion, I was at my parents' house that overlooks Fishguard … Continue reading Guest Post: Nick’s 5km Selfie –by Nick Russill (@nickruss)
