To tackle the spread of COVID-19, cafes, pubs and sit-in restaurants have been closed. However, you’ll be pleased to know that our cycle cafes are still functioning as workshops, should you need to have your bike fixed. Continue reading The new normal, a COVID-19 update
Wow, I completely missed February. It’s funny, time just seems to fly by these days. It could be a side effect of my advancing years, but more likely having so much going on that there’s barely any time to take … Continue reading Catching up…
We didn’t want to bite, we really didn’t. A quick read of the tagline, which speaks of car parking; mountains of hearsay and conjecture about the evils we cyclists have imposed upon humanity; and how nobody will use it –whatever ‘it’ turns out to be, pretty much tells you all you need to know.
Just a quick note to point out an excellent new resource for those interested in making Cardiff even better than it already is.
Share Cardiff is a network of grassroots community groups and projects in and around Cardiff that aim to make Cardiff a better, healthier, more connected and more social place to live.
We have created an online directory of Cardiff based grassroots groups, neighbourhood projects, local community groups, co-ops, social enterprises and other initiatives that are achieving social good and that share the values of the sharing movement.
The site has everything from swap groups and repair cafes to Credit Unions, open source projects and spare room networks. There’s also a healthy number of cycling groups on there too, including our friends at Cardiff Cycle City.
Check it out and, if you are involved in a project that you think should be on there, be sure to let them know.
What a brilliant, brilliant thing. There’s so much good happening in our fair city already, it just needed something to help pull it all together and give it a platform. Now we have one. Thank you, Share Cardiff.

We’ve talked about new year’s resolutions before, … Continue reading Why being ‘better’ is the only new year’s resolution you should make…
All, just a quick message to wish you all a Merry Christmas and that 2020 is a great one for you. I don’t want to jinx it, but some motivation has returned here and I’m looking forward to getting some … Continue reading A Happy Christmas from Cardiff By Bike…
It’s easy to become frustrated, particularly when trying to change behaviour, when people continue to do what it is you are trying to stop them from doing.
Why do people continue to do the thing that makes them fat, skint and stressed when healthier, cheaper and more rewarding alternatives exist? Continue reading Something to watch: Why it’s so hard to make healthy decisions
Armed with a GoPro I took a ride around a loop we talked about way back in 2018 called Easy Does It. Continue reading Video: Up & Over, easy does it
Being green is hot right now. Nobody really wants to be seen as the harbinger of death; the company that is bringing about the destruction of the ecosystem we depend upon, just to make a quick buck. However, there are … Continue reading What is ‘Greenwashing’?
Share Cardiff and Techniquest have teamed up for a free event on 21st October, aiming to provide workshops, stalls and talks from members of Cardiff’s sharing community. Continue reading Event: Butetown Community – The Connections Between Us
