The Swansea and West Wales CTC Member Group was founded in 1986 and has been cycling the Lanes and Byways of Swansea and the South Wales area ever since.We have regular club runs every Wednesday & Sunday throughout the year and during the mid summer months some short evening rides. All ages and levels are catered for and no one will be left behind, Everyone is welcome but please note under 16 year olds must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. You are welcome to come along and join us, but would be required to join Cycling UK (CTC) after a few rides.
If you haven’t used your bike for some time it may be worth getting it looked at by a bike shop. A basic service (tyres, brakes, gears etc.) should cost about £30-35
Leaders will carry tyre levers and some basic tools but won’t necessarily have a spare inner to fit your bike!
Wear comfortable trousers or shorts. Cycling shorts or tights are not essential but can make the experience more comfortable! A fluorescent vest is useful, but if you don’t have one then a bright top is a good alternative
Lunch will be in a café or pub. If you don’t want to buy lunch bring something to eat and we will stop somewhere on route. Other breaks may be in a café or pub, or we may find a picnic spot so bring some snacks to keep you going.
It is also important to make sure you have enough water. About a litre should be enough – more if it’s a hot day.
