Handlebar Barista

Handlebar Barista is Cardiff’s first mobile coffee trike, selling fresh Italian coffee around the streets of Cardiff. Today, the coffee trike was in the capable hands of Kieren, who rocked up to a street corner in the centre of Cardiff and was ready to make delicious coffee in no time at all. The secret was the coffee…

Adam & Wang Yu

Adam and Wang Yu were conspicuous by their candy coloured Bromptons as they walked down Bute Street earlier today. Visiting Cardiff, Adam and Wang Yu are from Shanghai, having been sent by Hearst Magazines in China on a multi-week series of mini adventures around the UK, including personally borrowing Bromptons from Andrew Ritchie (the owner of Brompton…

Jim

Jim was a little shell shocked when we met him. He’d just come out of an interview which hadn’t gone very well – we all know that feeling. It had turned out that the company was a bit of a scam, leaving Jim really let down after all his efforts. Jim, a musician, was glad…

Adrian

Adrian is mad about custom bikes. This one, constructed by welding two mountain bikes together, has had a bit of a Christmas makeover with 100 feet of fairy lights. But what Adrian really wants is a custom made trailer where he can mount some boom box speakers and spread some big beats around Cardiff’s streets. Rock…

Cat

Smiling in the late summer sunshine, Cat’s riding the perfect bicycle for our city and still she gets to wear a pretty floral dress. Magic!

Nick

Nick is a bike polo player and all round biker guy. Check out his colours. Wow!

Riding his beloved Cooper singlespeed bicycle (yes, Cooper as in the Mini Cooper), Gareth is a city planner and passionate about making our city more sustainable and livable. He’s travelled to…

Olivia’s special bicycle

Olivia first caught our eye because of her french stripe top and little yellow satchel, but that was only the start. As she was proud to explain, there is a wonderful story behind her rusty and tired old bicycle. So what was the story? Well, as Olivia explained “this was my grandmother’s bicycle, and when…

Simon

Always dressed with a dash of originality, the first time we caught up with Simon was before Cardiff’s World Naked Bike Ride (WNBR) in 2012 (have a look here if you want). He also contributed to our blog with some great images from the WNBR in 2013. This time, with clothes intact, and sweat band…

Nick

Nick is a bicycle aficionado with a collection of beautifully put together bicycles with a strong sense of style.  Which is not surprising. Why? Because Nick works at Momentum, our favourite interior design company and shop in Cardiff and is surrounded by beautiful furniture and interiors all day long. No wonder then that he’s got a…
