In Bray, ‘Sprocket Rocket Sessions’ will be under way at the bandstand from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. this Saturday, June 18.
Kids aged seven to 11 can bring their bikes and learn skills. ‘Cycling is a great way to get around, and with National Bike Week promoting cycling this June, I hope to see more and more people enjoying the benefits of choosing a bike as their mode of transport,’ said Minister Ross.
‘Bike Week not only promotes the leisure and fun aspects of cycling as a family, with friends, to sightseeing - it also highlights the other great benefits, health, saving money and efficiency. It is also a great solution to beating traffic congestion in our towns and cities.’
