South East WalesStarting from Pedal Power, Pontcanna Fields campsite, Cardiff CF5 JJ at 10.00am. 30 miles, Easy .
If you’re not already aware, I’m Peter Saunders, regional office for the S.Wales Tandem Club. Well it’s that time of year again when thoughts of dusting off the winter cobwebs from bikes and legs come to pass. So I’ll be leading an easy ride of around 30 miles heading off from the café at Pedal Power, which is a bike charity based at Pontcanna Fields, Cardiff CF5 9JJ. We meet at the café at 9.30am and the ride starts prompt at 10.00am. On the ride we have a café stop about halfway along and arrive back around mid afternoon.
The ride is organised on a regular first Saturday in the month event by Cycling UK so there should be other cyclists coming along as well.
Parking is not available by the café,(which is on the campground), but there is a car park on Fields Park Road, (free at weekends), and from there it’s a 2min ride to the café.
I hope you can come along and it would be useful if you could let me know if you intend to turn up.
Don’t forget that if you’d like to lead a ride then please let me know and I’ll publicise it.
Regards,
Peter
