CTC in Wales

Rhigo, South Wales - A cycle in the Valleys

At local level, CTC members form Member Groups to organise rides, tours, events and training, as well as sometimes getting involved in local campaigning.

CTC Cymru runs the highly successful Welsh Festival of Cycling every year and a number of events for the Tourist Competition. It brings together representatives of the Member Groups once a year in mid Wales and responds to Welsh Government consultations.

CTC has a seat on Welsh Government's Active Travel Board and a Wales wide Inclusive Cycling Forum. We are strenthening our relationships with other cycling organisations in Wales in order to help develop Wales as a cycling nation.

We are the one body which embraces all kinds of cycle use and interests and we welcome new members and supporters whatever their interest in cycling.
