Providers
Wheelrights
As noted on the About us page the events which Wheelrights provide include the annual Gower Cycling Festival, promotional rides and evening meetings.
Several evening meetings a year are held for our members. (Watch this page.) Talks are given at some. These meetings are open (and free). Detailed planning is done in our three sub-groups: Campaigns, Routes and Gower Cycling Festival. Members who feel they can help are encouraged to join one of these groups.
Sustrans
Sustrans main role is to create such important things as the National Cycle Network and Safe Routes to Schools. Currently their focus is on providing links to the NCN and encouraging cycle commuting. These aims are shared by Wheelrights. We hope also to help Sustrans - as we have in previous years - by manning stalls or supporting other activities organised by them.
Cycling UK
They changed their name from "CTC" to "Cycling UK" in the spring of 2016. On 1 January 2008 the local CTC group ceased to be a District Association and became the Swansea and West Wales CTC Member Group. (This group decided in 2016 to retain "CTC" in their name.) The old sections disappeared so that the rides which used to be the responsibility of the sections are now coordinated by the one group. They take place on Sundays, Wednesdays and often on another day as well. Most are at a moderate pace between 30 and 50 miles and are graded 1-5. Most are in the range 1-3 with Grade 1 indicating an easy ride suitable for the less fit or inexperienced cyclist.
For information about the local Cycling UK rides visit our page on the CUK website.
