Dáil / Oireachtas Politicians Get on Their Bikes for National Bike Week
National Bike Week Event
Date: Tuesday 16th May
Location: Front Gate / Kildare Street side of Leinster House, and along the cycle route
National Bike Week is well under way, with hundreds of events taking place all across the country between Saturday 13th May and Sunday 21st May.
There is literally ‘something for everyone’, on every day of the week, at a location near you – from fun cycles to film shows to bike repairs to adventure cycles and family events and festivals. Check out the National Bike Week 2023 website for full details.
But our Dáil / Oireachtas politicians are also showing the way and taking time out of their schedules to demonstrate the role of the bicycle in tackling climate change and making a difference in terms of our transport choices. On Tuesday 16th May at 1pm a range of our politicians from all party persuasions will get on their bikes, and cycle a circular route around the Leinster House complex (see poster route below).
This will be an opportunity to engage with politicians from all parties who are coming together to show how cycling is a key pillar of both our national transport and climate targets.
