Waterford Bike Week Programme Launched!

Published: May 31, 2017

National 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.

ALL Bike Week Events are FREE
