Leitrim County Council and Leitrim Sports Partnership are currently inviting applications from community groups for funding to assist with the organisation of a cycling themed event during Bike Week 2019, which will take place from June 22nd to June 30th.
The objective of Bike Week is to celebrate cycling in all its forms and to get more people participating in cycling both for transport and recreation.
The type of groups which may apply are community groups, voluntary organisations, schools, sports clubs, active retirement groups, community childcare service providers, work places or any group that wishes to organise a bike related event on a ‘not for profit basis’ during Bike Week 2019.
Examples of possible Bike Week events include (but are not limited to):
• Guided bike tour of a town/village. These can be themed, for example, heritage, gardens, or food trips.
• Cycles from your school to a local amenity on cycle to school/work Wednesday (13th June) for bike based games such as treasure hunts and slow bicycle races;
• Bike maintenance workshops
• Bike art exhibition
• Bike school art competition, quiz or drama
• Family fun cycle A midsummer night cycle
• Picnic cycle
• Cycling sports day.
The list is endless!
Grants available may be somewhere in the range of €100 to €500 per successful group/event, depending on applications received and the nature of those applications.
