Cycling for fun is great, but at Tredz we're also in it to win it by backing our Team Tredz competitive squad. We're proud to sponsor our Team of road cyclists, mountain bikers and triathletes who fly the flag for us at a local, national and even international level. If you're South Wales based, you might have even seen them out training on our local roads and trails.
We are proud to continue our support of multiple Para-Olympic and Para-cycling World Championship gold medalist Mark Colbourne. In 2012 Marc broke the world pursuit world record at the London Olympics and won the individual para-cycling pursuit World Championships in the same year.
Mark announced his retirement from Para-cycling in 2013 but continues to promote cycling through his work with the CTC as well as in his role as Paralympic Ambassador for the Lee Valley Velo Park that held the London Para-Olympics and Olympics in 2012. As Patron of Pedal Power Marc is helping disabled cyclists and their carers to access local trails and enjoy cycling in a controlled and safe environment.
Bethan is an experienced professional triathlete, performance coach and personal trainer and we at Tredz are proud to continue our support for her racing and training.
Bethan started her race career in 2004 with a win in her first competition and has been hooked ever since. Currently Bethan races long course triathlon and marathon events. In addition to being a professional athlete Bethan trains others for such grueling events as a certified Ironman coach, swim coach and personal trainer.

The three stages would be a mix of two red trails and one black trail so challenge us and push us to our limits. I think this was great as it has a mix of everything!
The best way to start is to look back and to see what I have done to get me to the start line. I won’t bore you with how many lengths of the swimming pool, how many miles on the bike or how many miles I have pounded on the pavement. But instead illustrate the wild winter in through some pretty crazy images. If I showed you every selfie or photo we may be here all day so here is just a select few…
