HighlightsThe proposed mass ride planned for Saturday, 18 June, has been cancelled. It proved too difficult to organise. The video "Space for Cycling" which we planned to show at the start of the ride will now be shown in Castle Square on 21 May. See the Events page.
Our consultation on the proposed development of the Fabian Way Corridor (Campaigns page) welcomes plans to provide good cycle access to the Bay Campus and suggests extensions to them. This audit on the Bay Campus cycle route (Infrastructure page) addresses the problem of near misses by Baldwin's Bridge.
The intention of the cycle map on the Infrastructure page is to show routes which the Council can include in the Integrated Network Map which the Active Travel Act requires them to produce.

We campaign for improved facilities for cyclists in the Swansea Bay area. We help get people on bikes by, eg, providing beginners' classes; we also provide information about rides and other matters of interest to cyclists and their supporters. We are an umbrella organisation, separate from the CTC and Sustrans and other cycling groups, but whose activities we seek to both support and complement.
A welcome break on a CTC ride in rural Carmarthenshire.
