Bike Day 2021

To mark National Bike Week, Ulick O’Beirne from Bike Wizards visited our school to provide cycling lessons to all classes today.

All classes got the opportunity to navigate their way around our playground and school track. They showed great control on their bikes.

While Bike Day was about the children practicing their cycling skills, it also played a very important part in promoting road safety awareness in our school.

Well done everybody on a fun morning of exercise.

Please see our gallery below for a snapshot of some of the cycling on display today.

Bike Week runs between the 12th – 18th September 2021.

Bike Week is a celebration and promotion of all that’s great about bikes and cycling. Held over an extended week each year, with bike-themed events organised by local authorities, community groups, and cycling groups throughout Ireland.

Cycling has much to offer people of every age and ability, so get on your bike and join the fun during this year’s Bike Week or anytime.
