Cork Bike Week will take place from Saturday 22nd June until Sunday 30th June 2019. With events taking place throughout Cork City and County during the week long cycling celebration, this year promises to be the biggest and best yet with an ever increasing diverse range of cycling activities for people of all ages and abilities to take part in!
Cork Bike Week is an integral part of the overall National Bike Week initiative and is organised by a multi agency group comprised of the Cork City Council, Cork County Council, Cork Sports Partnership, HSE South-Health Promotion Department, Cork Cycling Campaign, Cork Environmental Forum, UCC and An Taisce.
National Bike Week was launched in 2009 to raise the profile of cycling as a healthy and fun mode of transport and physical activity. See links below for event details and for events happening in your area. GET ON YOUR BIKE FOR BIKE WEEK 2019!!
