Cardiff City FC Foundation would like to thank and congratulate everyone who completed this year’s Men of Harlech Bike Challenge. 

 

Now in its fourth year, the purpose of the Men of Harlech Bike Challenge is to raise money to support primary school children to develop their reading and writing skills and provide children and young people with a disability access to sport through our Bluebirds Ability sessions. 

 

The money raised will support people like Isai and Zayn to achieve their full potential, regardless of inequalities around accessing education and sport. 

 

The ride began in Porthmadog, guiding cyclists past Harlech Castle and along the stunning Welsh coastline before finishing in Aberystwyth. The dramatic mountain and coastal views were replaced with a crisp morning ride through the heart of the Welsh countryside on day 2, before finishing in Cross Hands, Carmarthenshire. 

 

The final push involved cycling through the Swansea seafront and into the Welsh Capital. Our riders cycled over 200 miles and climbed over 15,000ft in the saddle, a tremendous achievement. 

 

The Bluebirds Charity would also like to say a special thanks to this year's official event partners; New Directions EducationEuro Commercials, Tredz Bikes, Ricoh Wales and Zenith Print Group.
