Coronavirus. Due to this pandemic all Wheelrights activities involving gatherings of people are on hold until further notice. Organised rides, which include the CTC Swansea and U3A rides, are cancelled. Note however that there are still some activities: check the Events page.

The Summer Newsletter (#52) is now on the Newsletters/Notes page. The editor would be pleased to receive correspondence or articles for the Autumn issue. (By mid August.)

Information about plans to improve NCR 4 between the Loughor Bridge and Gowerton (some of which have already been implemented) are described on the Infrastructure page under "Swansea Bay cycle routes". This page has also been updated with some material archived.

A new website with a journey planner for cycling and walking in Swansea Bay and beyond is now on the Rides/Commutes page. It includes routes on the recently constructed paths.

We campaign for improved facilities for cyclists in the Swansea Bay area. We help get people on bikes by, eg, by providing easy rides for near beginners or returning cyclists; we also provide information about rides and other matters of interest to cyclists and their supporters. We are an umbrella organisation, separate from Cycling UK, Sustrans and other cycling groups, but whose activities we seek to both support and complement.
