Why your business needs bicycles

If you own a business in Cardiff and you are not embracing bicycles for deliveries or for your employees, you’re missing a trick. Whether it is for the last mile or just getting to the office on time, the bicycle is the solution to urban mobility that has been sat under everyone’s noses since the 1880s.

Bike parking where people need it…

Whilst we are starting to get a picture of where Cardiff’s bike parking is, one thing we need to keep our eye on is where it isn’t. We’ve previously bemoaned the lack of additional provision for large events, but in some areas our day-to-day needs are not being met either. We’ve been building up an interactive map of the current provision, but what this cannot … Continue reading Bike parking where people need it…

Active Travel Planning for Large Events…

As a capital city with a number of large venues we do get our fair share of sporting events, concerts and festivals here in Cardiff. However, they often lead to a bit of a transport nightmare for many of us. The trouble is, travel advice for these events is often based around the assumption that people will drive, or use an already overcrowded public transport system. … Continue reading Active Travel Planning for Large Events…

The actual capacity at each location is unclear, but if you’ve seen & … Continue reading Llandough Hospital – Bike Parking

There’s three Sheffield stands to the right of the castle –enough space for six bicycles and allowing you to park up securely & take a look around this impressive … Continue reading Castell Coch, Tongwynlais

University Hospital of Wales – Bike Parking

Let’s face it, nobody really enjoys visiting a hospital, whether it is for a loved one or to have your own body repaired. It’s generally worrisome experience for all concerned, but paying for parking while you are there just rubs salt into the wounds. Fortunately, it doesn’t have to be that way, at least not at UHW, which appears to have an ample supply of bike … Continue reading University Hospital of Wales – Bike Parking

Any Port in a Storm – A parking project epiphany…

It’s been a couple of months since we talked about parking. It’s still an issue, but we’ve just had one of those “ah ha!” moments. Whilst the Enfys map, as we mentioned in the previous update, includes parking locations, a paper map or a large PDF is of little use if you are out and about looking for somewhere to anchor your steed. As we don’t … Continue reading Any Port in a Storm – A parking project epiphany…
