|First, to get outside. Second, help others get outside. (Well if you lived here you'd help yourself first too).|
Tredz is based in South Wales, a region that spoils its cyclists.
Without wanting to make you too jealous, we all live happily in the knowledge that within minutes of finishing work at our Cardiff and Swansea bases, we can go out and ride in some world class conditions.
We're local to Afan Forest Park (aka Afan Argoed), Cwmcarn and Glyncorrwg. Afan was the only UK trail destination to feature in What Mountain Bike Magazine as one of the ten best places to ride 'before you die'. And we're just a drive away from Llanwrtyd Wells and Nant yr Arian. Not to mention the untapped national parks, areas of outstanding natural beauty and miles of long winding bike friendly roads.
Riders on North Shore
This environment naturally creates (and attracts) some pretty dedicated riders.
We've got employees that commute by bicycle over eighty miles a day, Commonwealth Medal winners and fair-weather weekend warriors on our payroll. We're cyclists with a broad range of experience including cross-country, DH, triathlon, BMX and commuting. This means that we require very different things from our bikes and that our range loyalties are very wide reaching.
It's not all about bikes though, one of the team rowed to a silver medal in the Commonwealth Games and our warehouse manager has run three marathons: Paris, Cardiff and Rotterdam, inside 12 months. It's just mostly about bikes.
