So, what happens next?

I've been racking my brain trying to make sense of everything. One day in the spring of 2020 the world unilaterally decided to stop everything --everything that was previously seen as so precious that nothing should be allowed to stand in its way. But what happens next? When the lockdown ends, will people return to... Continue Reading →

Well, that escalated quickly… – Modal Shift in Unusual Times…

If and when the world does start to return to something resembling 'normal', chances are it is going to look very different to the one we've just left. No longer will it be acceptable for trains and buses to resemble the mosh pit of a Pantera gig, with people eager to maintain a safe distance from each other. Furthermore, the road network is unlikely to cope with a surge of new drivers on the morning commute. Some of us are going to have to find a new way to get to work.

Cycling Tips and Resources for Key Workers

The new normal, a COVID-19 update

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.

Catching up…

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 stock. The truth is, things have been rather hectic out in the real world, away... Continue Reading →

The plan for the Taff Trail through Hailey Park…

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.
