Strabane District Council and Travelwise Northern Ireland are encouraging local people to get on their bikes and take part in a range of cycling events and initiatives over “Bike Week” which takes place from the 18th to 25th of June. The campaign aims to promote cycling to ease congestion, improve health and help the environment.
Council Chair Thomas Kerrigan said: “This is the 6th year that the Council and Travelwise Northern Ireland have worked together to promote Bike Week. During Bike Week we encourage all Council staff to cycle to work. Cycling is a healthier form of travel and it is also good for the environment. I also would encourage the people of Strabane District to get on their bikes and take part in the other cycling activities that have been organised for that week”.
Other bike week activities include:
The Chairman added: “Bike Week gives everyone the opportunity to dust off their bikes and get out on the road. Physical inactivity is a major concern and this initiative allows citizens to engage in exercise and get healthier”
