National Bike Week was launched in 2009 to raise the profile of cycling as a healthy and fun mode of transport and physical activity.
The initiative was developed by the Department of Transport, Tourism and Sport and continues to grow each year. Bike Week is organised locally by Local Authorities, Local Sports Partnerships, Community Groups, Clubs, Schools and other interested cycling stakeholders.
This year promises to continue this growth trend with a great quantity and variety of events for the public to choose from.
For information on events happening in your county, see www.bikeweek.ie.
Cork City Council & Cork County Council have secured funding from the Department of Transport, Sport and Tourism to support a limited number of school cycling events during Cork Bike Week 2020. Cork City Council & Cork County Council are offering your school the opportunity to organise your own National Bike Week event to celebrate cycling within your school and community.
Funding Availability: Max €250 for School Events and event must be held within the week of Cork Bike Week.
