Ride For All & Over 60’s Rides


Hello everyone!

Hope you are all well and looking forward to lots of cycling this year.  

We have some exciting cycling opportunities coming this summer for you all to take part in and also share.

The links to both are below so if you use social media feel free to post or share online or of course we will be doing the same so if you follow us on Facebook or Twitter just look out for our posts.

Ride For All


Ride For All is back! Our annual inclusive cycle ride is back for the first time from the pandemic. FREE to join we are going to be holding two rides, both starting from Pedal Power HQ on Saturday 11th June;

Park Ride 2-3 miles. Meet at 11:30 for 12:00 start.

Bay loop 12 miles. Meet at 10:30 for 11:00 start.


This year we really want to showcase inclusive cycling and encourage everyone to take part in one of the rides and learn more about what we do at Pedal Power.


What if I don’t have anything to cycle?

Ride your own bike or trike in the Ride For All or if you would like to hire one from us then both rides start at Pedal Power HQ on the edge of Bute Park. Our HQ Location and Opening Times

You can hire one for the ride in the same way you can any day.

Please note because of popularity we encourage all hires to book as soon as possible to avoid disappointment. Anyone hiring will need a photo ID such as a driving licence.

Please share Ride For All with friends and family and if you have any questions don’t hesitate to ask.

We look forward to seeing you on Saturday June 11th


Booking Your Place on the Ride

You can book directly with us at bookings and for Pedal Power members cycle hire is free for the ride, this is our little thank you to all our members for being brilliant!


You can also book using the free Eventbrite link below which just help us know numbers for the day, using this link does not book you a bike or trike so always best to contact us directly for cycle reservations.

The Eventbrite link below can also be shared so feel free to drop it into your local cycling group or post it on a forum of facebook page, we really want to get the word out there so like and shares are a great help to us.

Pedal Power’s Ride For All June 11th Tickets, Sat 11 Jun 2022 at 11:00 | Eventbrite

Over 60’s Cycle Sessions


We also have a fantastic opportunity for anyone over 60 who is looking to get back into, learn, improve their skills or just enjoy a cycle around the park.

The link below is for 6 week courses of sessions for anyone over 60 looking to learn to ride, build their confidence in cycling or enjoy a wellbeing group ride around the park and meet new friends.

These courses are fantastic and run from Pedal Power including everything you so don’t worry if you don’t have a cycle.

Once booked in each session is £2 and the course will run for 6 weeks, once a week for about an hour.

You can sign up using the link below or email us directly at getcycling@cardiffpedalpower.org.uk


Tap the link below or email us if you have questions, again these are for you to share with friends or on groups who you think would benefit. If you want to improve your confidence or perhaps you know someone who has always wanted to learn then these sessions are here to help.


The only criteria from the funders at Sport Wales are that these sessions are for people aged over 60.




We look forward to seeing you all at Pedal Power this Spring and Summer and would just like to thank all of you who help out or take part in cycling, it is the fantastic people who make Pedal Power so wonderful so thank you for being part of us.

Female volunteer needed to help with a creche to support a Grangetown based FAN group

Fancharity are looking for a female volunteer to support a women’s FAN group in the Grangetown area that meets weekly on Wednesday mornings for an hour and a half each week. The first half of the meeting is an English lesson, followed by a short FAN (Friends And Neighbours) meeting where the women can practise their English skills in a supportive, friendly environment. 


The volunteer role would be to help with an informal creche in the same room where their mothers are taking part in English lessons and a FAN meeting. The volunteer will never be left with sole responsibility for the children and the mothers will be on hand to help with any problems. Ideally you will have experience with small children.  


As part of our recruitment process, we will request and take up references.  Volunteers for this role will also need an appropriate level DBS check which will be arranged and paid for by FAN. Volunteers will receive training and support from FAN staff and other volunteers. 

This can be a very rewarding volunteer opportunity.
