A morning video (cycle) adventure with Pol from Cardiff Cycle Tours

a morning video advenutre with Cardiff Cycle Tours

We caught up recently with Pol van Steelant from www.cardiffcycletours.com to shoot a small video blog for his website.

Away from the high streets, John Lewis and the same-old same-old, Pol took us on a journey of discovery and intrigue which gave us a real insight to this City that we have lived in for many numbers of years but knew very little about. Starting from our filming location in Bute Park overlooking the castle, Pol then took us on his fleet of Pashley bikes along the old Canal (yes, canal in Cardiff!!) all the way down to the wetlands in Cardiff Bay.

Our Vimeo video (at the bottom) captures just some of his thoughts on what is ‘real Cardiff‘.
