About us 

We cycle as a group in the Swansea and outlying areas and also arrange away day events and cycle tours in Britain and abroad. Currently we have regular rides on Sundays and Wednesdays, we normally have 2 rides on each day, one Leisure and one Moderate but sometimes we cycle as one large group. We also have Easy rides, Difficult and Hard rides, see the programme for more information.

We warmly welcome new members and you may join us before becoming a Cycling UK member for a few rides to see if our activities suit you. 

Typical of cycling groups we come from a wide variety of backgrounds and will do our utmost to make you welcome. Most of our rides are all day events and we stop for lunch in Cafes and public houses but you are welcome to bring a packed lunch.

Please see our Facebook  page for day to day activities and pictures:
