From free bicycle checks, fun cycles, lunchtime city rides, heritage cycles, school cycling events, bike festivals, road races and much more, there’s something for every age and ability. National Bike Week is an initiative of the Department of Transport.

As part of National Bike Week, Limerick City and County Council organises a week of events in workplaces, campuses, schools and communities, all centred around a shared love of cycling. Bike Week will run this year from Sunday 12 to Saturday 18 September.

Grant applications are now invited from individuals, clubs, groups, communities, schools and workplaces interested in running cycling related initiatives in Limerick during Bike Week. Grant funding of up to €500 is available to support people who want to run their own cycling inspired event.
