What is Bike Wales? Simply put: this blog is nothing more than an online record of my bicycling adventures. I am fascinated with the history, the landscape, and the people of this lovely little country. So additionally, I try to reflect my appreciation by showcasing some of the wonderful discoveries I make whilst pedaling about.

Content, content...

This site mostly displays content from my own personal adventures. I am the sole owner of bike wales and all content contained there-in. I am the Editor-in-Chief, Creative Director, Photography Director, and Publisher. Rasputin Crankshaw is merely "Head-Hooligan" and unpaid for his rantings, which are intended for amusement purposes only.

DISCLAIMER: The sole purpose of this website is to promote the benefits of cycling and encourage increased cycling by providing readers online access to maps and route reviews. Bike Wales bears no responsibility for any claims based on the actions of third parties. Riders ride at their own risk.

You can read about rides or events within this website(blog) of which I was asked to organise. I did this as an unpaid volunteer. These rides or events generally consisted of small groups of cyclists riding under the auspices of the charity organization; Sustrans. I mostly used the traffic-free routes on the National Cycle Network - which have been developed and are largely maintained by unpaid Sustrans volunteers. I highly recommend everyone to check out their exceptionally fine work @

How do you do this web thing? Well, I'm using a number of Google applications and Samsung products which I've listed along the sides of this page. I've tried to make the site fairly simple for both myself and the readers. I don't use any installed applications... nothing is stored on my Chromebook. All my text, photos, and code are in the hands of Google.

Thanks Blogger.

I'm using this excellent online applications for ALL my photo editing in the cloud!
