Cycling Clubs

Ceredigion is great cycling country and has several cycling clubs, some of which can provide opportunities for visitors to meet and cycle with local enthusiasts.

Cycling Clubs 

Formed in May 2012 and based near Aberaeron, the West Wales Cycle Racing Team can already boast Welsh Youth champions and a British cycling champion.

During the summer, the club has skill sessions for youngsters in safe off-road locations.  Anyone is welcome to attend, including visitors on holiday in the area.

Another relatively new club, Clwb Beicio Tregaron Cycling Club  has over 50 active members  - testimony to the great cycling country around Tregaron. One popular route is the circuit around Cors Caron, the great raised bog of the upper Teifi Valley.

Established in 1994, Velo Teifi is based in the Cardigan area and has over 80 members, the  cub modestly describe themselves as “probably the best cycling club in West Wales”!

An active club with an emphasis on enjoyment rather than ‘head down/ bum up’ speed sessions (although they do that too!), the club has road rides most weekends throughout the year. They’re not solely focused on skinny tyres however, with regular mountain bike trips organised to satisfy the fat-tyre and mud cravings of club members; Velo Teifi gold and blue can regularly be seen leaping around Brechfa and sliding around Nant yr Arian.

Velo Teifi are also the organisers of the ‘Preseli Angel’ cyclo-sportive each early May Bank Holiday weekend in nearby Newport in north Pembrokeshire; this event is a firm favourite in the Sportive calendar offering great routes and a friendly atmosphere.

Sarn Helen Cycle Club is a sister club to the long established Sarn Helen Running Club based in Lampeter, Club members take part regularly in MTB events and sportive road rides across Wales.

Road cyclists meet up every Tuesday night at 6.30pm at the Rookery car park near the leisure centre in Lampeter, while mountain bikers get together in various locations on the second Sunday of each month.
