Rider Profile

Robert Parr

I have worked for Cardiff and Vale for 15 years, undertaking  various Workforce and OD roles. While I have always been a relatively active person, I never really started cycling until 2014 thanks to an introduction by Mike Mullan.  I would describe myself as  a “hobby” cyclist rather than a real enthusiast, someone who just enjoys the benefits of cycling and going out for a ride with a friends on most weekends! 

 I have taken part in the Carten for several years now.  While I enjoy the challenge of riding over 100 miles, the friendship and atmosphere that you experience on this ride is absolutely fantastic.  It really is something special!

I always love a challenge and cycling provides many!  For me, whether it is riding 100 miles or cycling up a very steep hill, facing that challenge is all part of the fun!
