Without the vital support of our partnership organisations Aberystwyth Cycle Festival wouldn't be possible. Read more about how we work with each below...
Ceredigion County Council and Visit Ceredigion are the main partners of Friday's Pearl Izumi Tour Series event, Their support has enabled this major event to be held in Aberystwyth.
Cllr Ellen ap Gwynn, Leader of CCC and keen to see more use made of the promenade, said :
“I’m so pleased to see that Aberystwyth is once again able to host popular cycling events. The race last year was well supported by locals and by the cycling enthusiasts who came from afar to cheer all the competitors and the children’s event. The seafront and promenade is an excellent backdrop and venue to welcome competitors to Aberystwyth. ”
The Town Council have been supporting our event since it's inception in 2011. Without their help, we would not be in a position to host the Tour Series race.
Councillor Mererid Jones commented :
"This is one of the year's big events for the town centre and gives us some great coverage on a national scale, where people can see what Aberystwyth has to offer, with the race circumvaigating some of the landmarks that make the town so unique and well worth a visit. The event is also bringing in extra revenue to the town centre which is of course very important in the current economic climate".
