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.
