Bike Week returns to Limerick this Saturday 14th May with a host of events to celebrate and promote the benefits of cycling. Events include a family bike ride along the Limerick Greenway and a cycling tour at Lough Gur, as well as free bike repair clinics across the city.
National Bike Week runs for eight days from Saturday 14th May through to Sunday 22nd May.
This year will see Limerick City and County Council and Limerick Sports Partnership organise a week of events in workplaces, schools and communities, all designed to celebrate the joy of taking to two (or more) wheels.
Limerick Bike Week will culminate with a family cycle in the heart of Limerick City. It will begin at Arthur’s Quay at 2pm on Sunday 22nd May and will see hundreds of cyclists, young and old, take to the streets of the city.
Mayor of the City and County of Limerick, Cllr Daniel Butler said, “Bike Week is a great opportunity to remind us all of the benefits of cycling. I hope that it inspires more children in Limerick to ride to school in the future, and more adults to consider taking to two wheels for those shorter journeys.”
