Equality: Welsh Cycling

Home » About us

Equality Statement

Welsh Cycling is committed to making cycling in Wales more equitable and available to everyone. Cycling in Wales is historically a white, male dominated sport. We are committed to change. Everyone should be free to participate in cycling regardless of gender, race, ability, religion, sexuality or age.

Wales has an increasingly diverse population - not all have an equitable representation in cycling. Everyone should have the opportunity to participate at recreational and competitive levels and to progress to an elite level in cycling. Participating in sport improves community relationships and the general health of the population.

Sport Wales and UK Sport have provided all National Governing Bodies with Equality Standards that must be met. Welsh Cycling will work to ensure that it will become more Equitable; both in terms of the organisation and the wider sport.

If you have any feedback or suggestions you would like to make on how we can make Welsh Cycling more equitable then please contact: info@welshcycling.co.uk

This is because we want to do everything we can to stamp out such injustice within our sport. The details you provide will be recorded and held securely and confidentially, and subject to the circumstances we will do what we reasonably can to provide you with support.
