Volunteers, officials and coaches who go the extra mile to make a difference to our sport here in Wales will once again be recognised for their commitment and contribution to the sport of cycling alongside Wales’ elite cyclists at the 2015 Welsh Cycling Awards.
There will be 13 awards on offer, including Lifetime Contribution to Cycling to recognise individuals who have made a significant impact on cycling in Wales. New for 2015 will be the Go Ride Club of the Year, recognising the growth in provision for young people to get into cycling in Wales' accredited Go Ride Clubs.
Cycling clubs and members are invited to nominate their cycling champions who will be awarded at the dinner on Saturday 7 November at Mercure Cardiff Holland House Hotel and Spa, Cardiff.
2014 saw Tudor Thomas of Bynea Cycling Club, recognised for his years of dedication to cycling through his role as commissaire and as a volunteer in Wales with the Lifetime Contribution to Cycling accolade. World Champion Manon Carpenter received Elite Cyclist of the Year for her continued success throughout the season winning the World Cup series and World Championship title whilst Abergavenny Road Club claimed the Club of the Year title for the second time.
Anne Adams-King, Chief Executive Officer of Welsh Cycling is pleased to see the event continue to grow,
“The 2015 Welsh Cycling Awards is a fantastic opportunity to recognise people from all corners of the cycling community in Wales who dedicate their time to developing our sport and providing opportunities for everyone to enjoy cycling in Wales.
The awards ceremony is also an exciting opportunity for businesses to engage with cycling and it’s rising stars in Wales as well as hear about the terrific work done by the people at the heart of cycling in Wales, the clubs, the volunteers and the coaches who together inspire Wales to cycle.”
