Rhys Williams, a 34-year-old supply teacher, was a keen member of the Swansea Wheelers cycle club, taking part in competitions regularly and always keeping himself in good shape.

Mark said: “Those who know Rhys will describe him as being one of the happiest of people, always full of humour and was considered a gentle giant.

“Rhys’ lifestyle was heavily involved around cycling. He was an enthusiastic cyclist who would always be training.

“Everyone he knew was drawn to him and he would always light up a room. Rhys sustained a life-changing and traumatic brain injury following a cycling accident in July 2015. The impact on Rhys, the family and friends has been devastating.

“The air ambulance was able to rescue Rhys in his golden hour of need, before being taken to the Heath in Cardiff where he received critical care and treatment.

“We are very thankful for the care that Rhys received from all the doctors, surgeons, therapists and nurses. Rhys also spent almost two years at the Neath Port Talbot neuro-rehabilitation ward, which we are eternally grateful for.

“We are now two-and-a-half years on. In that time there have been countless hours spent by both family and friends who have been to the hospital supporting and encouraging Rhys.

“The support he has received has been immense and has certainly contributed to his wellbeing.
