Welsh Cycling - Who we are

Home » About us » Who we are

If we want the public to understand who we are, it's important that we first know in depth and believe in what we do.

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

Welsh Cycling is the national governing body of cycling in Wales, based at the Geraint Thomas National Velodrome in Newport, with regional hubs in North and West Wales.  Welsh Cycling provides guidance and support to 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, a social rider, cycle commuter, or a dedicated volunteer we want to help you enjoy cycling.

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 180 affiliated cycling clubs throughout Wales and recreation programmes (including HSBC UK Breeze and Guided Rides), all supporting the local needs of cyclists; providing a social scene, events, rides and competitions.

We also work alongside British Cycling to increase our political influence, lobbying government to make a sustained and resolute commitment to improving conditions for cyclists.

Leading Cycling

As the governing body of cycling in Wales, our mission is to lead from the front. We want to Inspire Wales to Cycle by giving the best opportunities to people in Wales who want to ride their bikes, whatever the discipline.

Growing Cycling

Helping you get out on your bike is a big goal for us – but once you’re on your bike we want to help you grow on your cycling journey. We have many offerings to encourage social riding with the HSBC Breeze initiative or if you’re looking to teach your children how to ride, the Ready Set Ride is a great way to start the cycling bug young. If you’re the competitive type we also have a wide ranging Welsh Cycling events calendar you can try. Whatever your cycling taste, we have something for you.

Performance in Cycling

The success of our Welsh athletes has helped put Wales as a cycling nation on the map – Geraint Thomas became the first Welshman to win the Tour de France in 2018. Our other athletes are also flying the flag high, representing top World Tour teams. But we also work extremely hard to bring through the next generation of Welsh talent through our Performance programme which will help us to take home medals at future Commonwealth Games.
