Tesco supermarket at Llandudno Junction has cycle stands for only 3 cyclists

IKEA has given all its astonished employees a bicycle for Christmas (Click here)

With the news that IKEA is seeking a greener image to counter the belief that it contributes more than its fair share to global warming by acting as a honey pot for motorists, it will be interesting to see how many other multi-million pound companies follow suit. Tesco at Llandudno offers parking spaces for just three cycles - one of which is taken by a staff member who regularly cycles to work. We'd be interested to hear what you think of your supermarket cycle parking facilities.

Get Me To The Church On Time!

No getting stuck in traffic jams for computer consultant, Rod King, and his daughter Sadie. As a trustee of the Salford based charity 'Cycling Projects', Rod, a dedicated member of CTC and the Warrington Cycling Campaign, borrowed a four-wheeled CP Pedicab to make sure the anxious groom wasn't kept waiting at the altar. Well done, Rod. For Sadie and husband Martyn, we wish them a safe and happy journey in the years ahead.

National Cycle Network Route 5 Pensarn - Llanddulas.

Global Warming is affecting parts of the North Wales coastline. This includes the popular coastal cycle route. There are indications that the Holyhead rail line and the A55 Trunk Road will be threatened unless remedial action is taken soon.
