The Cappuccino rides restart on 4 May. See the Rides/Commutes page for information about them and the Events page for when.

For your entertainment there is now a cyclists version of wordle on the Various page.*

The link to the Highway Code on the Links page has now been updated to relate to the new (January 2022) code.

The GCF page has been replaced by a Special Events page. There you will find reports of Wheelrights events. It kicks off with two accounts of the 12 December Christmas ride, with a Welsh translation of the second one. The record of the nine Gower Cycling Festivals is retained.

The Spring Newsletter (#59) is now on the Newsletters/Notes page. The editor would be pleased to receive correspondence or articles for the Summer issue by mid May.

Clicking these thumbnails will give you an impression of Wheelrights rides. They feature our Cappuccino rides. These should restart in the late spring.

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.

The following sequence of pictures illustrate what Wheelrights is about. To view the next one click the image.*
