Bike Week Festival

May 11 - May 19

Get ready to saddle up and roll out because Bike Week is back! From Saturday 11th to Sunday 19th May, Wicklow Sports & Recreation Partnership is proud to announce the return of this national event. Bike Week promises to be bigger and better than ever, with an array of exciting activities planned throughout the county.

Sure to be a highlight of the week will be Blessington’s Bike Week Festival taking place on Saturday 18th May, in the car park of McGreals Primary Care Centre from 11am to 3pm. This festival promises to be an celebration of cycling, with something for everyone to enjoy.

Kicking off with a Funky Disco Yoga, it will be followed by outdoor spin sessions with HD Fitness, a balance bike course, and two Learn to Cycle taster sessions. Attendees can also look forward to face painters, street performers, and a pop-up Let’s Play event, ensuring non-stop entertainment throughout the day. But the true centrepiece of the festival will be Wicklow’s very own Street Velodrome, specially designed for children aged 8 to 14.

Prior to that, the week-long celebrations will kick off with a series of free Learn to Cycle taster sessions in Arklow, Rathdrum, Greystones, Baltinglass and Tinahely. These sessions aim to instil confidence in beginners and encourage more people to embrace the joys of cycling.

In a bid to make cycling accessible to all, free bike rentals will be available throughout the week from the Avon in Blessington.
