“It’s great to see another club in Wales providing opportunities for young people to get in to cycling in a safe environment. Newport Cycle Speedway Club members are successful in the Elite Cycle Speedway leagues, and it is great to see younger members flourish and enjoy taking part in cycle sport. ”
The club have spent the winter ensuring they have the correct policies and procedures in place, developing links with local schools to create a sustainable pathway to encourage more children into Cycle Speedway.
