Applications are now open for 2022 Donegal Bike Week which runs from Saturday, May 14th to Sunday, May 22nd.
County Donegal will be part of National Bike Week for the 13th successive year and once again with Donegal Sports Partnership coordinating events locally.
Donegal Sports Partnership’s Community Sports Development Officer, Karen Guthrie is hoping to attract all groups to Donegal Bike Week: “Donegal Sports Partnership is encouraging new groups to make an application and be part of 2022 Bike Week. Community groups, disability groups, cycling groups, workplace organisations, primary schools, secondary schools are all invited to get involved.”
Guthrie, who plays for the Donegal Senior Ladies Gaelic Football team is sure of the benefits of cycling: “With Bike Week the emphasis is on fun and freedom. This year there is a greater awareness of climate change, too, so what better way to travel than to get on a bike. More and more people are realising that cycling is a really enjoyable hobby and a great way to get around.”
