Following a successful launch event last year BikeFest returns to Cabinteely Park on Saturday June 16th.
This event is part of Dun Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council's events programme for National Bike Week, which takes place from Saturday June 9th to Sunday June 17th 2018.
Why not use part of the dlr Cycle network to get to the event!
Four selected cycle friendly routes leading to Cabinteely Park will feature a treasure trail. Each route will have a series of clues which cyclists can solve to be in with a chance to win €250 worth of vouchers from a bike shop. Each route will have its own winner with a total prize fund of €1,000!
We will announce the routes and treasure trail questions on Friday June 8th here on events.dlrcoco.ie.
When you arrive at Cabinteely Park, BikeFest will present a spectacular cycle themed festival event featuring Bike Tune Ups, Bling UR Bike decorations, Cycling Information, Food and Smoothies made by our pedal powered Smoothie maker. Strolling entertainment will come from “Cycle Circus” performers and Street Entertainers.
The centrepiece of BikeFest will be a unique cycle stunt show from Ben Savage's Savage Skills. Savage Skills riders have set Guinness World Records and won World Championships with their unrivalled abilities on two wheels. They will present four shows, on the half hour of 20 minutes duration during the event. Between shows Savage Skills riders will teach visitors safe cycling skills on their custom BMX track.
Entry to the event is free but please remember there is limited parking in the area around Cabinteely Park so please cycle, walk or use public transport to get to the event.
Bikefest is organised by dlr Events and is an initiative by Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council.
Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council has a huge variety of events planned for 2018.
