Bike parking where people need it…

Whilst we are starting to get a picture of where Cardiff's bike parking is, one thing we need to keep our eye on is where it isn't. We've previously bemoaned the lack of additional provision for large events, but in some areas our day-to-day needs are not being met either.

Active Travel Planning for Large Events…

As a capital city with a number of large venues we do get our fair share of sporting events, concerts and festivals here in Cardiff. However, they often lead to a bit of a transport nightmare for many of us. The trouble is, travel advice for these events is often based around the assumption that people … Continue reading Active Travel Planning for Large Events…

Castell Coch

Visible from most of Cardiff and sat smack-bang on the Taff Trail, Castell Coch is an excellent place to take the bike. However, can you park your bike when you get there? The answer is yes.

Any Port in a Storm – A parking project epiphany…

It's been a couple of months since we talked about parking. It's still an issue, but we've just had one of those "ah ha!" moments.

Any Port in a Storm – A parking project update

Good news everyone! The 2015 Enfys map actually includes the vast majority of parking locations. It won't necessarily include the spaces on private land, nor will it give you too much detail into how many spaces are there, but it's a useful resource to have. Cardiff’s cycle network includes all the roads and streets in the … Continue reading Any Port in a Storm – A parking project update
