BIKE Week is coming back to Limerick bigger and better than ever with a full programme of events aimed at promoting cycling and its benefits from May 14 to May 21.
Activities get under way with the Family Bike Parade and Fun Day at Arthurs Quay Park on Sunday, May 14 from 2pm to 4pm. Participants in the parade, which starts at 2.45pm, are encouraged to bring their bikes for the parade, but even those without a bike can join in as a limited number of TFI Bikes will be available and free to use.
The parade will take in King John’s Castle, Thomond Bridge, Clancy Strand, O’Callaghan Strand and Shannon Bridge with cyclists of all skill levels encouraged to take part.
Throughout the week, there will be a range of activities to encourage and inspire cycling in Limerick, ranging from group rides to workshops and talks.
Limerick City and County Council Director of Transportation and Mobility Brian Kennedy said that Bike Week is a fantastic opportunity for people to discover the joys of cycling and to learn more about how cycling can benefit both individuals and communities.
