Jade's new howies blue 'do.

Sample Sale


Looks like it will be busy in town this weekend as Cardigan prepares for the River & Food Festival tomorrow. The festival will be held at Cardigan's Quay Street car park situated on the River. The organisers are expecting around 8,000 people to drop by and indulge in the 70 food, drink and crafts on show.

Expect some well known chefs doing some cookery demos, there'll be live music, river events, children’s activities and street entertainment.

Oh - and across the bridge from the River and Food Festival, Cardigan shop is having a sample sale.

The warehouse team have been going through boxes and clearing out rails to put together some great stuff for you. Stuff we've used to measure. Stuff there's only 1 or 2 of. Stuff that never got made.

Limited edition stuff, if you like.

The kind of stuff that tends to go fast.

13.1 Miles

A few of us have been talking about running the Cardiff half marathon today. Some of us have even got around to registering.

Keen to keep up the momentum, I hope to head out for a lunchtime run a couple of times a week in some loose form of 'training' for the 13.1 miles. I have yet to work out a plan on how I'll go from starting running on Monday to finishing what will be my 1st event, but I'm sure I'll get there.

A couple of us popped out to the lake for a run today. I'm still not quite keeping up with Ruben and the stills from the GoPro video might tell you why!

Today's 5km was shorter and easier than Monday's run but despite the slower pace and shorter distance, I was still edged out at the sprint finish. Come October, I hope I'll be able to give Ruben a run for his money... at lunchtime at least.

Just came across Loki Longboards online.

Based in Devon, these guys are riding unwanted or disused antique furniture brought back to life as recycled timber longboards. Each board tells it's own story through the hand crafted wood decks. A piece of history in every one.

The guys even collaborate with riders to suit specific tastes, riding styles, timber preferences and source timbers (within reason) on request.

So before you break apart that old cabinet or bin an disused set of drawers, it could be worth a look at their range for some insight as to what they could be.

Lunch Breakout

Believe it or not, it's summer out there.

Despite the rain and with the arrival of my new shoes, we decided it was time to hit the trail.


I'm new to running, so when given the choice, I optimistically opted for the 10km stairs route. I followed Ruben who set a punishing pace through the woods in a climb and fall over loose trail and slate, chasing the river. My new road shoes held despite the rain, it was simply my legs that couldn't keep up with the gate-hurdling Ruben.

My efforts eventually paid off, making it back to the office with a smile, and my shoes broken in.
Below is a short I've titled "Ruben kills Alex".

Note to self: Next time - Run harder. Run further. Keep up longer.

Get out the calendar and circle the weekend of October 1st & 2nd. The howies Coed y Brenin Enduro is a brand new event, happening, at....yes...Coed y Brenin forest park.

We've teamed up again with Summit Cycles, the crew who brought you the Dyfi Enduro and created this brand new event in the UK’s most famous mountain biking forest.

The route will be played close to our chest, but we promise it's going it's going to be a great mix of trails you know and some stretches that rarely get seen or ridden.

Unlike Dyfi forest there are lots of options on linking trails in CyB, so you'll have two routes for you to choose from - 30km & 60km each. Both promise awesome riding, great feed stations, and a twist of that howies Dyfi enduro weirdness.

Remember though, it's an endurance challenge, not a race (although times are recorded..), so you can go as fast, or slow, as you like.

howies are contributing a bundle of gear which will be awarded at random as riders cross the finish line. We're also doing an event T-shirt, which you can grab at signup.

Registration dates TBA, but if it's anything like the Dyfi, places will go fast!

So, if you're interested in riding some superb technical single-track in the famous Coed y Brenin, you'll want to keep your eyes peeled.
