A family-friendly cycle will take place on the Limerick Greenway at Rathkeale as part of Limerick Bike Week
LIMERICK Bike Week will start this weekend with a series of family cycles in the heart of the county and city.
This year, Limerick City and County Council and Limerick Sports Partnership have organise a week of fun cycling events in workplaces, schools and communities.
Mayor of the City and County of Limerick, Cllr Daniel Butler welcomed the events to the county.
“I hope that it inspires more children in Limerick to ride to school in the future, and more adults to consider taking to two wheels for those shorter journeys,” he said.
Events this Saturday include a Dawn Cycle with Limerick Ladies Cycling Club, a family-cycle on the Limerick Greenway at Rathkeale and a family fun day at Oola GAA Grounds. There will also be a cycling tour at Lough Gur.
