HighlightsA current priority for Wheelrights, which will run well into 2017, is to identify preferred cycle routes in the County for inclusion on the Council's Integrated Network Map (INM) which they are required to produce by September 2017. This is covered in our Autumn Newsletter. Some of them are the routes shown on the map on the Infrastructure page, which also includes detailed reports on selected routes. Our LDP submission on the Campaigns page marks these and other routes on a map.

We campaign for improved facilities for cyclists in the Swansea Bay area. We help get people on bikes by, eg, providing beginners' classes; we also provide information about rides and other matters of interest to cyclists and their supporters. We are an umbrella organisation, separate from the CTC and Sustrans and other cycling groups, but whose activities we seek to both support and complement.
