Cardiff Cyclist’s favourite tweeters:
Chatting to Gwenda Owen is inspiring to say the least. If there’s one thing we love, it’s community and Gwenda is really hands-on in the Cardiff cycling scene. Follow her twitter feed for fantastic cycling vibes, active travel inspo and a shining example of women getting stuff done!
Follow Gwenda here: @beicio
Great cyclist, fantastic blogger and all-round nice guy Simon Nurse is a great source of inspiration for all cyclists. Whether you’re an active commuter , cyclocross shredder or family cyclist, the CycleStuff blog and twitter feed will keep you up to date and enthused about riding in Cardiff and the surrounding areas. Keep up the good work Simon.
All things local cycling with a delightfully welsh undertone. Beicwrtaf really keeps the cycling twitter community moving with lots of RT’s, comments and tweets. If you love cycling and love Cardiff then this is one to follow.
Kate Alizadeh is a local artist/illustrator, cyclist, coffee courier at Lufkin and all-round badass at doing it for the girls.
We love going out riding with Kate. She’s always totally on the case with the cool stuff happening in the cycling world.
Spit & Sawdust | Creative Space / Skatepark
I could (and sometimes do) go on about this place a bit too much. It is an absolute melting pot of good stuff. They’re bike friendly, cyclist owned and have plenty of events to keep your creative side quenched. The menu is simple and absolutely fantastic. Think local, DIY and uber friendly. Read our full review HERE.
We love coffee. Brewing it, roasting it, pouring it and well.. drinking it. Now, around Cardiff you’ve got a few options for delicious elixirs and we’ll share them with you here…
Contact email@example.com to book them for your event.
Remember Kate? Well Kate does the coffee delivery for Lufkin (by bicycle!) If you’re in the mood for something chic and delicious, head to Lufkin: 183A Kings Road, Pontcanna.
The Little Man Coffee Co. is everything we love and so much more. Fantastic welsh coffees brewed extremely well, lots of nice people and plenty to get involved with. (They also do a fantastic job of hosting our cycling themed events.) The railings outside the door are a perfect lock-up spot and you’ll probably find yourself another cyclist to chat to in there.
