More than 30 local events for Bike Week 2023
Bike Week 2023 runs from Saturday May 13 to Sunday May 21, and, supported by Westmeath Sports Partnership and Westmeath County Council, more than 30 events will take place in communities, clubs and schools across the county.
Bike Week is the annual festival of all things cycling supported by the National Transport Authority as a celebration of a sustainable, healthy and low carbon means of travel.
The aim of Bike Week is to promote the health benefits of cycling, and encourage people who have not cycled in a long time to get back in the saddle, or those who have never cycled before to feel the benefits of life on two wheels.
There are a wide range of events for people to support and get involved in over the course of the week, including Cycle on Wednesday events, ice cream cycles and an opportunity to set a new record for the highest number of bikes on the edge of a track.
Bike Week is for beginners, more advanced cyclists, or even those who just would like a leisurely spin at their own pace in a fun and safe environment.
Cycling is a wonderful way to get some fresh air, make new friends and help play your part in reducing your carbon footprint.
