Starting from - We’ll meet at the far end of the car park at Wenvoe Garden Centre (furthest away from the centre itself), I believe the toilets are still accessible here, but bring a mask if you might like to use them. I will be cycling out from Dinas Powys so let me know if you want to join me. CF5 6AD
This Breeze network Cardiff, Vale and Valleys ride is open for anyone to join
IMPORTANT: THIS RIDE IS ONLY FOR VALE OF GLAMORGAN RESIDENTS. This is a lovely route through Porthkerry and around Rhoose on as quiet roads as possible. There are two bigger hills in and out of Porthkerry but both are on very quiet roads and there is no rush, if you need to walk, we will wait at the top of hills as needed. This is a good first longer/road ride if you’ve mostly ridden on cycle paths to date. There are a couple of options to shorten or extend the route depend on the weather and who comes along.
As far as possible the route is on off road bike paths (from Wenvoe to Barry) and quiet roads/lanes through the Vale, but there is a short section on busier roads in Barry.
There are toilets and a cafe in Porthkerry which we pass twice on this route. If fine we'll stop on the way back for anyone who wants to buy a take away snack or eat one they've brought with them. Remaining socially distanced at all times. Bring a mask if you want to go in the cafe/garden centre.
Make sure your bike is in good working order and bring clothes appropriate for the weather, extra layers are a good idea in case we have to wait for people at the top of hills which can be breezy!
We never leave anyone behind
