    In the space of 8 days in May 2002, Cardiff hosted both the FA Cup final and the European Rugby cup final. Cardiff is a small city and is best avoided on days such as these. The streets, pubs and restaurants are all packed and it can be a little chaotic.

    The Hayes Outdoor Cafe. Theres nothing dangerous about it... but a word of warning, for eleven out of twelve months if you go here be prepared, your going to get rained upon, your going to get wet, your going to have very damp clothes for the remainder of your day, your going to get cold as the dampness seeps through your clothes, its going to spoil the rest of you visit :0) If it's sunny... you will enjoy yourself. We do have more than our fair share of wet weather.

    Biker's Nightmares!
    Pedal Slips......
    More or less every biker out there has experienced a pedal slip, when the pedal slips out from under your foot, swings around, and hits you in the shin.
    A pedal slip usually leads to incredible pain, a barrage of swear words being uttered, and a cut on the shin. This problem is easily solved, either wear shin pads, or take the more expensive options - SPD pedals or some quality downhill racing trousers, which should have built in pads around the shin area.


    The one main nuisance on a lot of tracks are walkers blocking the narrow paths, with their large backpacks. It is very tempting to bunny hop over their dog, and barge them out of the way, but this will only lead to trouble with the forestry commission or whoever runs the area
    (unless it's in the countryside!!) .
    The best thing is to try and avoid the walkers all together, and go on those paths later on in the day (about 5ish). The quiet country paths, or the 'cycling only' paths are best for daytime use.

    They usually have the last laugh when you crash in front of them and you pretend it didnt hurt.....NOT MUCH EH....!!!!!

    Watch the benches in the Garden Room! As I previously stated in the intro, they tend to tip!
    This pic is from their guidebook, it shows benches better than my pic did.
