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.

One Planet Adventure have taken forest-based mountain biking in North Wales and turned it on its head. Based in Coed Llandegla, they have set up a series of excellent built trails within a very accessible environment. Of course, OTC courses here are not limited to the forest and we make the very best of the wide ranging legal riding available outside of the forest and within the superb Clywds area too.

Carmarthenshire cyclists start local campaign group and look to build local support

Do you want to improve cycling locally……meet like-minded individuals…..and make a difference? CTC local cycle campaigners and cycle enthuiasts Phil Snaith and Geoff Rone have set up a forum in Carmarthenshire with the aim of making cycling a safer and more convenient way to travel.

The time to act is now as political momentum has picked up the pace. Cyclists' uphill struggle for better infrastructure and facilities has now changed up a gear and the Active Travel (Wales) Act 2013 has been passed. You now have an opportunity to voice your own opinions and collectively campaign for better cycling for all in Wales.

New section of cycle route for Snowdonia

CTC attended the opening last week of a new section of Lôn Gwyrfai, a cycling and walking route linking Caernarfon to Waunfawr. The new section joins Rhyd Ddu to Beddgelert.

The work developing the new section of the  Lôn Gwyrfai multi-use path was part funded by the Communities and Nature (CAN) project, which is a £14.5m European funded project led and managed by Natural Resources Wales. CAN aims to generate economic growth and sustainable jobs by capitalising on Wales's environmental qualities, particularly its landscape and wildlife.

"Wales should be proud of this Bill" was the message from Minister for Culture and Sport John Griffiths. It is due to receive Royal Assent (i.e. it will become an Act) in October, and will then be brought into effect early next year.
