European Week of Sport aims to support and promote the benefits of an active lifestyle, via the #BeActive message between 23rd – 30th September.
With a focus on grassroots initiatives, it will inspire Europeans to #BeActive on a regular basis and create opportunities in people’s everyday lives to be healthier and happier through physical activity.
Welsh Cycling would like to encourage people across Wales to get on their bike and enjoy the benefits that physical activity and the outdoors can bring, in regards to mental well being and health in general.
Chief Executive Officer at Welsh Cycling, Anne Adams-King said "Our vision at Welsh Cycling is to first and foremost inspire Wales to Cycle.
"We have a number of different programmes and grassrooots initiatives, which give people who have not previously cycled the opportunity to get involved.
"European Week of Sport is a great opportunity for all sporting governing bodies to further promote their programmes to help inspire an active nation".
