Getting To Sophia Gardens

Cycling
A popular way to travel to the Stadium is by bicycle and we are in the ideal location to do so i.e. via the Taff Trail which runs from Cardiff Bay to Brecon. The Stadium has more than 30 cycle parking spaces located underneath the Altodigital stand. Copies of the Cardiff cycle map are available by contacting cycle@cardiff.gov.uk
