Mayor of Waterford City and County Council, Cllr. Adam Wyse recently launched the programme for National Bike Week events on the Waterford Greenway with the help of students from Gael Scoil na nDéise.
Bike Week 2017 will take place from Saturday 10th to Sunday 18th June, with bike related events taking place right around the country. Waterford is no different and in fact, we have a very strong tradition where Bike Week is concerned. In all, there are almost 50 events taking place right across Waterford City and County over the course of the week to suit all ages and fitness levels.
The programme is targeted primarily at those new or returning to cycling or those who just want to enjoy a leisurely spin with friends and family!
Bike Week, which is funded at national level by the Department of Transport, Tourism and Sport, is about celebrating all of the benefits of cycling for both recreation and transport. Those wishing to be part of the fun should find an event in a location to suit all comers.
There are Family Fun Cycles, bike check-ups, community cycles and school cycling events taking place right across Waterford, from Ardsallagh in the west to Faithlegg in the east and many towns and villages in between, as well as Waterford City itself.
Look out for Bike Week updates on www.bikeweek.ie or www.waterfordcouncil.ie in the coming weeks. You can also contact the local bike week coordinator Johnny Brunnock, Waterford City & County Council at firstname.lastname@example.org; 0761 10 2496 more details on how to get involved.
So come on Waterford, “Get on Your Bike!” from 10th to 18th June!
