Home » About us » Who we are

Welsh Cycling is the national governing body of cycling in Wales, working in partnership with British and Scottish Cycling.

Based at the Wales National Velodrome in Newport, with regional hubs in North and West Wales, Welsh Cycling provides guidance and support in all forms of cycling in Wales. Whether you are a competitor in one of the six sporting disciplines (Mountain Bike, Cyclo-Cross, Road, Track, BMX and Cycle Speedway), a member of a cycling club or a dedicated volunteer we want to help you enjoy cycling.

Welsh Cycling has seen success at elite levels, with World, Commonwealth, Olympic and Paralympic champions made in Wales. We continue to support athletes through our performance programmes, feeding in to the Great Britain Cycling Team and representing Team Wales at Commonwealth Games.

Cycling is more than a sport, everyday Welsh Cycling engage with the cycling community in Wales to help them grow and develop coaching, education and volunteer opportunities.      

We have a network of over 170 cycling clubs throughout Wales working towards the local needs of cycling; providing a social scene, events, rides and competitions.

We work alongside British Cycling to increase our political influence, lobbying government to make a sustained and resolute commitment to improving conditions for cyclists. In Wales, Welsh Cycling is part of the Active Travel Board, ensuring that the Active Travel (Wales) Act 2013 is implemented to make it easier for people to walk and cycle in Wales.
