Guest Post: 2017 Sportives: my cycling year so far –by @eggynewydd

Dan

This year I set myself a challenge to ride as many cycling events as I could. When attempting to compare them, it’s a fairly subjective business once you’ve gone beyond the cold hard Strava stats. In the end I settled on the following criteria: 1 - Ambience Riding companions Scenery Friendliness of fellow riders and … Continue reading Guest Post: 2017 Sportives: my cycling year so far –by @eggynewydd

Guest Post! From unloved fixie to pretty & practical porteur –by @bendihossan

Before we dive in, I’d like to set the scene to where I was a couple of years ago and how I came to fall in love with riding and roaming around Cardiff By Bike - see what I did there? 😉 A few years ago I was returning to riding after nearly a decade … Continue reading Guest Post!

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.

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: 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: 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)
