CTC Volunteer of the Year for South West England, Wendy Creed.

Wendy moved to Cornwall just four years ago and has established herself as one of the most energetic personalities promoting cycling in the county.

As well as starting her own cycle training organisation she has actively supported other cycling activities in the area. In particular she has been a major contributor to the Anthony Lord Foundation which aims to teach children across Cornwall how to ride their bikes safely after 13 year old Anthony was killed in a collision with car on his bike.

As well as a the second local memorial ride this year Wendy is planning an End to End Ride for the foundation and supporting a range of other initiatives for the foundation, including training programmes.

Wendy has actively supported CTC's campaigning positions on issues such as cycle helmets and cycle paths in the face of considerable local opposition. By promoting the benefits of training cyclists to deal with their environment she has gained a considerable public profile for cycling.

As a result, Wendy was also involved in ‘gearing up’ for the new national cycle training standard Bikeability from September 2006 until March 2007 and since has gained her Bikeability scheme accreditation. She is planning to work with local partners to start delivering CTC offroad cycle training too.

In March of this year she was also awarded an Honoured Citizen of Truro award for her work for the RNLI using cycling for fundraising.
