Cycling In Cardiff
The growing number of traffic-free shared pedestrian and cycle routes include:
- The Rhymney Trail, which runs for just over 2 miles, follows along the Rhymney River connecting the areas of Rhymney and Llanrumney in the east with Llanedyrn and Pentwyn in the west, via Rhymney Hill Gardens.
- The Ely Trail, which links St Fagans to the International Sports Village in Cardiff Bay, where it connects to the Bay Trail.
- The Bay Trail. Enjoy Cardiff's rich heritage and spectacular views while cycling around Cardiff Bay. The trail is 6 miles long and runs around the Bay and across to the seaside town of Penarth via Pont Y Werin, a 100-metre bridge providing a link for pedestrians and cyclists between Penarth and the International Sports Village.
- And of course the historic Taff Trail, which runs north to south along the banks of the river Taff, linking Cardiff Bay, the city centre, Bute Park and more. The Taff Trail runs 55 miles in total ending eventually in the heart of Brecon.
