To celebrate the achievements of Wales’ very own Geraint Thomas at Le Tour this year, Welsh Cycling is planning a celebration cycle ride tomorrow (Sunday, 29th July), starting at 7:30pm.
The lap of honour will start outside the National Assembly building in Cardiff Bay, before crossing the barrage and heading up the Taff Trail to Cardiff Castle.
The cycle ride is nothing difficult and is open to everyone. It’s not a long ride or a race just an excuse to wear yellow and show the Geraint some appreciation. Riders are being encouraged to ring their bells and honk their horns in celebration as well.
HE'S DONE IT!@GeraintThomas86 is the 2018 @LeTour champion 🥂
3rd on the stage but more than enough built up from the last 3 weeks of racing to claim the title.
Da iawn Geraint 👏#TDF2018#AllezG #AllezCymru https://t.co/QuuLiPHusO

Speaking about Geraint’s achievement, Anne Adams-King, Chief Executive at Welsh Cycling said:
“There has been an outstanding buzz across not only the cycling community in Wales; but everyone in Wales – who have really come together to support Geraint all the way.
“The celebratory ride is a fantastic opportunity for the people of Wales, and Geraint’s hometown of Cardiff to unite together, wear yellow and show their pride for being Welsh.
“We are overjoyed with Geraint’s achievements over the last 3 weeks and look forward to watching him tomorrow officially secure victory as the first welsh man ever to win the Tour De France.
“An unbelievable moment not only for cycling, but for sport in Wales.”
