Top cycling bodies are meeting with Welsh Assembly Members to voice their support for CTC, the national cycling charity, and Open MTB’s campaign Trails for Wales, today (23 September 2015) at Roald Dahl Plass just outside the Senedd in Cardiff.
Following contact from the Welsh Government, CTC is looking to help source children and young people's views on improving opportunities to access the outdoors for responsible recreation. If your young one enjoys the outdoors then read on!
While the supporter base for CTC and Open MTB’s Trails for Wales campaign keeps on growing, some campaigners have questioned why CTC would support such a campaign. Sam Jones, CTC Communications and Campaigns Coordinator explains why.
The Welsh Government wants to improve the opportunities to access the outdoors. CTC, together with Open MTB and partners, sees this as a chance to open up the Welsh countryside while also putting pressure on England to do likewise – and we need your help!
Statistics for cycling in Wales show a disturbing trend as cycling casualties increase, as CTC Cymru calls for the Welsh Government to make good on the ambitions contained in the Active Travel Act Wales.
