Wicklow People (West Edition) - - NEWS -

A Bike Trike Ride was held in Dunlavin as part of Bike Week 2019.

Ais­ling Grace, chair of the Dunlavin and Dis­trict Fo­rum which or­gan­ised the event, said the group were de­lighted to be in a po­si­tion to help to ar­range ac­tiv­i­ties within the com­mu­nity to cel­e­brate Bike Week.

There was also a bal­ance bike obstacle course, sup­plied by Jackie Kinch from Wick­low Lo­cal Sports Part­ner­ship, and the chil­dren were put through their paces with a limbo pole for bikes and ramps.

Mem­bers of the Reser­voir Cogs Cy­cling Club vis­ited to ex­plain how bi­cy­cle gears work and about the im­por­tance of wear­ing a hel­met.

Dunlavin and Dis­trict Fo­rum also held bike-themed art and pho­tog­ra­phy com­pe­ti­tions through­out the week and there were lovely prizes for all the young artists. An­toinette Whe­lan, sec­re­tary of Dunlavin and Dis­trict Fo­rum, was on hand to present the prizes.

All the chil­dren went home with new lights and locks for their bikes.

Mem­bers of Reser­voir Cogs share their knowl­edge of bikes at the Dunlavin Bike Trike Ride.
