About Bike Week

Bike Week is a celebration and promotion of all that’s great about bikes and cycling. Held over a week in June of each year with bike themed events organised by local authorities, community groups and cycling groups throughout Ireland.

Cycling is fun. Did you know that – Anyone from 6 to 100 year olds can ride a bike; – Its a perfect chance to spend quality time with family; – Biking is a very flexible form of exercise.

From free bike checks, fun cycles, lunchtime city rides, heritage cycles, electric bike races, school cycling events, bike festivals, road races and much more. There’s something for every age and ability. Join the fun at this year’s Bike Week. Where will your bike take you?
