Introduction

WELCOME! I've been cycling through the Southeast Valleys of Wales since 2010 and I can't say (or show) enough about the place. I just love it. So if you've got the interest and would like to spend some time... sit back and let me show you some of the fabulous places I've discovered.

VOLUME 01 ISSUE 02

I've been pretty busy for the past couple of months. I've kicked up my longer rides trying to go a bit further north and west. Surprisingly enough, I got a call from Parkinson's UK to venture out the Vale of Glamorgan. You can see the results of that trip to Ogmore by the Sea as well as my last Sustrans ride below. I've rounded up some of the details from several other recent adventures along with my take on "humble-bragging" in my 100 Mile Club. Finally, I've thrown in a link to a retro bike from Pashley I quite fancy.



Parkinson's UK & the NGS
I was asked by Parkinson's UK to lead a group ride to promote their relationship with the National Garden Scheme. You can see some of the fun we had visiting seven unique gardens in my Special Event Gallery.



Cordell Country Heritage Ride
I've moved on from volunteering for Sustrans, but you can read about my last lead ride from May of this year. It just happens to be one of my favourites too! See the gang and fabulous weather we shared in this Welsh Heritage Special Event.



2017 100 Mile Club
Many may laugh at the extent of which I track my cycling... but cycling is what I do AND I also enjoy a good spreadsheet. You can view the dirty details in one subcategory of which I am particularly proud.



Fochriw Highlands & Taf Valley
I continue to write reports on my adventures for Ride with GPS. Take a look at the stylish layout offered by RwGPS stylish in my latest installment covering a unique route along the Gelligaer Common as well as a tasty section of the Taff Trail.



Pashley Retro Racer
I've been "eye-ballin'" this beauty for a while. One day maybe I'll have one for myself. Meanwhile, I thought I'd share the love.



I hope you've enjoyed your visit and thanks for stopping by.

Cheers! - cm
