The National Closed Road Circuit in Pembrey Country Park will officially open with a weekend festival of cycling for all on Saturday 4th and Sunday 5th August.
The weekend will include races and activities suited to everyone, including Youth, Adult and Para-cycling.
The closed road cycling circuit is the first in South Wales and will further compliment Carmarthenshire’s aspiration to become the cycling hub of Wales.
Aled Jones, West Wales Development Officer at Welsh Cycling said: “It’s been fantastic working with Carmarthenshire County Council on this project.
“The Circuit will provide a safe, traffic-free environment for coaching and training sessions; and will be used to stage competitive cycling competitions, such as the first stage of the Tour of Britain in September".
Welsh Cycling Chief Executive Anne Adams-King added: “We are thrilled that the Circuit is open, as it will provide a key resource for talent development.
“Cycling, like any other sport, needs to provide opportunities at grass roots level for children and young people, enabling them to continue on the talent pathway and even onto elite level, via our sport pathway.”
“We hope that everyone joins us on the opening weekend to celebrate the fantastic facility and have a go at the activities”.
