Fingal County Council’s Active Travel team is gearing up for Bike Week 2022 and this year we’re asking schools across Fingal to get involved!
Cycling is a great way to enjoy exercise while getting some fresh air. It also promotes confidence in children to travel independently and is a sustainable and cheap climate action we can all build into our daily lives.
How Can My School Get Involved in Bike Week 2022?
Choose from one of two school activities this Bike Week:
Children dress up as superheroes (imaginative or legendary) and cycle to school on a date of your choice within Bike Week. This event encourages children to commute to school by bike, reduces congestion at the school gates and promotes independence and confidence.
Bling Your Bike
Encourage kids to bring their bike to school already ‘blinged’ up for a fun start to the day, or organise a bike decorating art class – a great outdoor activity! This event encourages children to love their bike and promotes creativity.
Prizes for Schools
Schools who register their participation on or before 5pm on Friday, 20th May, and submit event photos by close of business on Wednesday 25th May will be entered into a prize draw.
3 Winning Entries will win a choice of:
- 1 x €250 cycling safety gear voucher (Cycle Superstore) for your school
- A DIY cycle safety course kit worth €250 for your school including hi-vis vests, child sized road signs and more
- Kids Bike Helmets for your class
We have attached some pictures of our Super Hero Cycle and Bling Your Bike events from 2021 for some inspiration!
Don’t delay – register today and get ready for an exciting and fun Bike Week!
