Cycling Ireland's Family Cycling Festival BIKE FEST was back again
in 2016. The sound of bicycle bells and laughter filled up St. Anne’s
Park, Raheny, on Sunday 19th June from 12 – 5pm, The Dublin City Council Park
was transformed into a cycling haven for all the family. Cycling Ireland’s
FREE annual family cycling festival marked the last day of National Bike
Week, offering an opportunity for all ages to enjoy their bike, from the 18
month old avid balance bike enthusiasts, to the older children amongst us, with
cycling activities for everyone.
This was the fourth year that the family cycling festival took place in St. Anne’s Park, with the aim of providing a fun learning experience on the bike to children of all ages. The festival offers a good balance between the learning of new skills in our coached skills zones featuring Sprocket Rocket, Gearing Up off Road, Strider Bikes and a mini cycle track, and a relaxed atmosphere in the picnic area.
Even the wet weather didn't dampen the spirits of all those who attended. Check out all the action below:
