The goings on in and around Bridgend

Biking in Bridgend County

Yesterday, Wales Online posted this article about Porthcawl Bike Hire, a new bike hire business in Porthcawl offering 'fat bikes' - bicycles with larger, wider tyres that allow the rider to go along the sand and even to the edge of the sea without sinking.


The bikes allow cyclists to travel from one end of Porthcawl to the other without ever having to go onto the road, and this is the perfect activity for a hot summer's day on the Blue Flag beaches of Porthcawl.

Keep in mind, however, that Bridgend County is a great spot for all types of cycling, not least mountain biking up in the rugged hills of the Bridgend County Valleys.

There are two Darren Fawr Mountain biking trails - the Glengarw trail for intermediate riders and the Gellideg trail for experts. You can actually combine them to create a really challenging trail that's about 6km in total."

Blue trail - named the Glengarw Trail (after the Glengarw Colliery, also known as the Ballarat). This is 3km long and involves a 100m climb.

Black trail - named the Gellideg Trail (after the largest coal seam in the Ocean Colliery) This is 3.2km long and involves a 200m climb.

    I'm a college student with no auto and before the finish of this late spring, I'll have all that could possibly be needed for a bicycle. I'll simply utilize the bicycle for riding around grounds and around town to the bank (I have a vocation appropriate by grounds), the market, etcetera. It'll feel pleasant to not need to walk 30 minutes just to get to the bank and I won't feel super puzzled on the grounds.
