Pride Ride around the Bay

Read all about our first Ride for Pride with Welsh Cycling


Well it's been a fantastic summer of sport so far with the Rio Olympics, and not to mention our first 'Ride for Pride'.

Welsh Cycling kindly organised a bike ride around Cardiff Bay to celebrate Pride Cymru on Saturday 13th August. A budding group of cyclists took to the Taff Trail and Cardiff Bay loop for a recreational ride which finished at Coopers Field.

"A great time was had by all on the Ride for Pride around Cardiff. Lovely company, beautiful scenery and most importantly a break for coffee and cake. Cycling is a fantastic sport for engaging people of all abilities, and working together with partners like LGBT Sport Cymru we hope to continue to move away from the stereotypical MAMIL cyclist and make it accessible to all."

- Emma White, Welsh Cycling

Huge thanks to Emma White and Welsh Cycling for organising the ride and we look forward to seeing more people take part next year.

If you're interested in cycling there are a number of ways to get involved, especially if you've been inspired by the Olympics:

  • Contact Welsh Cycling directly for information on recreational, competitive or club opportunities in your area.
  • For women, find out more about the network of Breeze rides in your area.
  • You can also check out the network of Sky Rides for all abilities in your area.

Don't forget to follow the Paralymic Games which kicks off in Rio on 7th September!
