From May 13 to May 21, there will be an exciting lineup of events and activities aimed at promoting cycling and its benefits for Bike Week 2023

Kicking off the festivities is the Family Bike Parade and Fun Day at Arthurs Quay Park on Sunday, May 14 from 2pm to 4pm. The parade, which begins at approximately 2.45pm, promises to be a fun-filled event for all ages. Participants are encouraged to bring their own bike for the parade, but even those without a bike can join in as a limited number of TFI Bikes will be available at the event and free to use.

The parade will take in some of Limerick’s most iconic sights, including King John’s Castle, Thomond Bridge, Clancy Strand, O’Callaghan Strand, and Shannon Bridge. Cyclists of all skill levels are invited.

But that’s just the beginning! Throughout the week, there will be a range of activities to encourage and inspire cycling in Limerick. From group rides to workshops and talks, there’s something for everyone.

Limerick City and County Council are excited to partner with local groups and organisations to bring Bike Week to life. This year’s events will highlight the many benefits of cycling.

Brian Kennedy, Director of Services, Transportation and Mobility at Limerick City and County Council said: “Bike Week is a fantastic opportunity for people to discover the joys of cycling and to learn more about how cycling can benefit both individuals and communities. We hope that everyone in Limerick will get involved and enjoy the fantastic lineup of events we have planned.”

So, mark your calendars and get ready to hop on the saddle for some pedal-powered fun.
