Abergavenny Road Club has been awarded £1,090 thanks to the generosity of Sport Wales and the Monmouthshire Community Chest Panel
Steve Lane, The Club’s Development Secretary said. “Abergavenny Road Club was named Welsh Cycling’s Club of the Year in 2013 and 2014 and has recently received Go Ride Accreditation”. “Our Club membership has risen to 285 and while we promote races, events and coaching – we do rely heavily in our volunteers as without them we could not share our passion for the bike while making it accessible to as many cyclists as possible”
“This Award will allow us to offer existing coaches discipline specific education and finance a L1 course for one young volunteer”.
Chair of Sport Wales, Professor Laura McAllister said: “Community Chest has been and continues to be a huge success across Wales. It is the hard work and commitment at this grassroots level that really makes a significant contribution to our ambitions of getting every child hooked on sport for life and creating a nation of champions”..
