Ystwyth CC is actively trying to encourage ladies to race, with Chris Jones of Ystwyth Juniors arranging ladies’ cycling skills sessions at Canolfan Rheidol with a view to increasing the number of ladies participating in the Aberystwyth Cycle Festival events as well as other similar events. The hope is that the success of club members Anita Saycell, Leah Brewer and Lois Brewer will give further encouragement.
