The bank holiday weekend has inspired at least one of our partners to lay on a few deals. With that said, it seems to be only Wiggle who appear to be offering anything particularly interesting.
Last time we didn't get around to looking at some of the infrastructure at the southern end of town, particularly the new "cycle street" on Taff Embankment, as well as some old relics on Clarence bridge and James Street.
It feels as though we've already spent a nauseating amount of time talking about urban sprawl, particularly in the context of Cardiff's local development plan, but it's something that can't be stressed enough.
