Publihsed: 4 June 2014

The University of South Wales has further strengthened its sporting links by signing a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Welsh Cycling.

The MoU, which is thought to be the first of its kind in Wales, will see the University and Welsh Cycling working in partnership to promote cycling and educational opportunities for people of all ages and abilities across Wales.

Welsh Cycling is the nationally recognised governing body of cycling in Wales, and has a network of over 110 cycling clubs from grassroots to Commonwealth Games level.

Alongside the University’s successful partnerships with the Cardiff Blues, Cardiff City Football Club and Celtic Dragons netball, the MoU will further enhance sporting and educational relationships between USW and Welsh clubs at all levels.

Alun Davies, Director of Sport, Health and Wellbeing at the University of South Wales, said: “This Memorandum of Understanding cements the captive partnership we have with so many students. Cycling is a major focus in Wales and the UK, and together with Welsh Cycling we will be able to promote the academic and sporting opportunities available to all.”

Anne Adams-King, Chief Executive Officer of Welsh Cycling, added: “We are extremely pleased to be working in partnership with the University of South Wales in this exciting new venture. Our collaboration will no doubt help to drive both of our agendas in the development of cycling and education, which can only be a positive move towards a healthier nation.”
