Sybil is the director of Pedal Power Cardiff, a CTC affiliated group and the home to Cardiff CTC’s monthly Café Rides. She set up Pedal Power Cardiff 16 years ago.

Pedal Power has grown from a bike trip to the Forest of Dean for residents of Ely Hospital to the large project it is today. It has a bike shed full of every type of bike imaginable, its outreach work and café help many people to get cycling and learn to ride a bike.

Winning the right to cycle on Llandudno Promenade

Roy Spilsbury shares his experience of fighting and winning a campaign to allow cyclists to ride along the Llandudno Promenade.

Retirement didn't mean cyclist and CTC Local Cycle Campaigner Roy Spilsbury was going to relax. He felt rage at a rather ridiculous proposal by his local council to keep cyclists off the spacious promenade in Llandudno. The Council wanted to force cyclists to cycle on congested main roads rather than by the seaside, so Roy launched a successful campaign to get them to change their minds.

Winner of the Arthur Moss Medallion and CTC Volunteer of the Year for the North West Region – Glynis Francis

Glynis Francis is a World Champion, a grandma and an inspiration to hundreds of Manchester women. Her ground-breaking cycling network for women, Team Glow, has attracted a steady stream of women – some of whom had not picked up a bike for decades – and turned them into accomplished cyclists.

Glynis's own personal achievement of reclaiming her gold medal from 2002 to become Sprint Champion at the World Masters Track Championships held at Manchester Velodrome in October 2013 is the pinnacle of Team Glow's success, and her speed of 43.5kmh / 27 mph has won her the accolade of the “Fastest Grandma in the World”!

In an era when cycling’s popularity has soared, Glynis has been working doggedly behind the scenes to bring more women into this traditionally male-dominated sport.
