Vale Council aims to increase cycling opportunities


09 December 2016


THE Vale of Glamorgan Council’s Sports and Play Development team is working in partnership with Welsh Cycling to explore how to increase cycling opportunities within the Vale, particularly for young people and women.

Bike HorizonThe initiative would be part of Breeze Rides, a nationwide programme aiming to get more women riding bikes for fun and fitness, and would also support the Council’s Sports Development initiative, Girls on the Move.

As part of this programme, there will be organised cycle rides led by an experienced female cyclist called a Breeze Champion.

The rides are very social and, apart from your bike and helmet, no equipment is required.  More information can be found on

If you have an interest in cycling and want to become involved, as either a participant or volunteer, please let the Sports and Play Development team know.
