British Cycling's SW recreational Manager Brain Johnston is lined to to be the guest speaker at Swindon Bug's forum event in January. The event gives you a chance to hear what SBC has done with LSTF funds in regards to cycling in 2012 and what its plans are for the future. We are also holding a workshop to plan events for Swindon Bike Week 15-23 June 2013.
It is hoped the Wheelers would be able to hold some event to attract some of the growing numbers of cyclists in Swindon to the club and to road cycling in general.
