National Bike Week 2014 will take place from this coming Saturday 14th to Sunday 22nd June, with bike related events taking place all over Ireland. There are 23 events taking place right across County Waterford over the course of the week.
We are urging people to get out on the bike at some stage over the week possibly to cycle to work or school, or just meet with friends to take a leisurely spin in the countryside!
In order to help people get their bikes ready for the week ahead come along and be part of our ‘Gear Up For Bike Week’ event which will take place in the Fusion Centre, near Dungarvan Sports Centre on this Thursday evening 12th June from 4 to 7 p.m. Bring your bike along for a FREE ‘bike check up’. Simple fixes will be carried out there and then; if it can’t be fixed, our experts will let you know what you need to do. There will also be some basic bike maintenance demos including how to fix a puncture and how to carry out a basic maintenance check on your own bike.
