Events Announced In Wicklow For National Bike Week

Over 25 events are planned in Wicklow for National Bike Week 2022 which begins on Saturday, May 14th and runs until Sunday May 22nd. The theme for this year is ‘Click into Gear’.

n partnership with the National Transport Authority, Bike Week is a celebration and promotion of the benefits of cycling. Cycling, as a mode of travel, is on the increase with more people choosing to cycle for shorter journeys, making it more important to have your bike in working order.

 To coincide with all of these activities, beginner and intermediate Bike Maintenance Workshops will be taking place in Blessington, Greystones and Wicklow Town.

These workshops will teach cyclists how to change tubes and tyres, tune the gears on their bike and how to make adjustments to their brakes, so they work and feel right specified to their needs.

Each participant will leave the workshop with a free puncture repair kit and tyre lever.

Spaces for each event can be booked via the Wicklow Sports Partnership Eventbrite. For a full schedule of events and links to booking check out www.wicklowlsp.ie
