The last ride of 2015

The weather forecast was fine up to about 1, so it was a 10 o'clock start which meant me leaving at 9.30 to meet up.  Like many others I've had the dreaded cold /chest infection over Christmas and this was a test to see how things were. The group went on much further but I left them when we got to the Bay area and made my way home along the Taf Trail.  It was really good to be out but my chest was still tight, so I didnt push it, and made it home before the rain.

The sun was out and so were the daffodils in full flower, this is about the earliest I've seen them.  This puts them about 2 months ahead of schedule.

Crossing the Bay bridge.

The Cardiff Bay Barrage which has helped to prevent flooding in Cardiff. 

Passing the Millenium Stadium.

The trail back to Taffs Well.

The route although a mainly urban ride of 21 miles,  the bits on the Taf Trail break it up.


  1. Happy New Year, Dave! Your pictures are just lovely. Hope you get over your illness quickly. Thanks for a great blog and I look forward to seeing more in 2016.

  2. Do hope that Barrage does a good job. Happy New Year.

  3. Aye lots of water there.
    Grand day for a bike ride.
    All the best to you and yours for the new year!

  4. Lovely ride. So hope you are over that nasty cold and feeling much better. Wishes for a Blessed New Year.
