RECRUITMENT: If you are a Marketeer, a Comm’s or Business Person who could help us in the next exciting phase of the development of Cardiff Cycle City, please see below for detail of our request for help:

A major function of Cardiff Cycle City is to communicate all cycling-related developments in Cardiff to as many cyclists as possible. To this end we need to find a way to raise public awareness of our group, ideally by a combination of traditional methods and online social media channels.

If you have any experience of building a marketing campaign, or have any ideas about how to increase our profile and can help in any way, please contact us at with the email subject Marketing Strategy Offer.
