Go Ride Wales Clubs


If you’re a new or existing club in Wales then our Development team are here to help to grow your club and the sport of cycling throughout Wales.

Our primary tool for developing a club is through our Go-Ride programme which not only provides a supportive environment to attract & develop young riders but also as a way of ensuring the club is a secure and structured organisation suitably equipped to support the demands of your members.

So if you are looking to develop your club volunteers, apply for funding or develop a local facility we would very much like to hear from you.
