And they're off... the Cardiff Cycle Challenge begins!

More than 1,500 people from around 80 different organisations across Cardiff are taking part in the Cardiff Cycle Challenge. And, because there’s still time to sign up, it’s hoped that even more people will join in.
Cyclists in Cardiff

What promises to be the biggest ever city-wide cycling challenge got under way in Cardiff this week.

From Monday 2 until Sunday 22 July,  teams are competing in the Cardiff Cycle Challenge.

The idea is that individuals taking part can cycle at a time to suit them, even if it’s only for ten minutes. To make sure their journeys by bike contribute towards their team’s success, they must record their rides on the dedicated website - www.cardiffcyclechallenge.org.uk

Welsh plan for connected communities - why detail is important

The Welsh Government is about to legislate to force local authorities to map out and plan improvements to the cycle networks. Although a great step, I think it's vital that the routes are of a proper standard to make cycling attractive and feasible.
NCN 8 in the Wye Valley

I greatly enjoyed a tour cycling the length Wales using National Cycle Network (NCN) Route 8 - Lôn Las Cymru - a couple of years ago. The route follows minor roads and, if starting from the south, begins on the Taff Trail, a traffic-free route that heads north from Cardiff. It's routes like these that local authorities in Wales will have to map out and plan improvements to under the proposed legislation.
