Leitrim Bike Week is an integral part of the overall National Bike Week initiative and is organised in association with Leitrim County Council and Leitrim Sports Partnership and is funded by the Department of Transport. Cycling events have been organised across the county by local authorities, community groups, charities and cycling groups. Cycling is a fun, healthy, safe, environmentally-friendly and low cost way to make those shorter journeys. Nearly everyone has cycled at some stage, but so many lose the habit.
Bike Week is an opportunity for people to get back on the saddle – for commuting or for recreation or just for the sheer joy of it! There are many different activities organised all around the County this year during Bike Week 2019 including:
· Leitrim Cycling Festival starts off the week – Saturday and Sunday 22nd-23rd of June
· Cycling Schools Sports Day, with Leitrim Sports Partnership, on Tuesday 25th of June
· Women on Wheels Cycling programme with Leitrim Sports Partnership on 24th & 26th June.
