This is a challenging ride starting from Barry Island and ending at Wickes Newport. The route is mostly cycle tracks, canal paths and some roads near Barry. We're cycling the reverse route this time to make sure we get home before dark! We will go through Penarth, Cardiff bay, the Taff trail up to Taff Bargoed then down to 14 locks canal centre and on into Newport. It is not suitable for new or inexperienced riders and those that do not expect to cycle at consistent speed of 15 mph. The rider will need to arrange their own transport to the start point on Barry Promenade for a prompt departure at 11am. This is only planned as a one-way route! Riders will mostly be on road bikes or light hybrids. Bring your helmet, don't forget to check your bike over before you start and pump your tyres up. Don't forget some money for lunch and maybe icecream!
