BikeFest – Family Cycling Festival
Bikefest is a brand new dlr Event and is designed to not only promote the dlr Cycle network but also National Bike Week which takes place from Saturday June 10th to Sunday June 18th.
The event will feature a treasure trail on four selected cycle friendly routes leading to Cabinteely Park. Each route will have a series of clues which cyclists can solve to be in with a chance to win €300 worth of vouchers from a bike shop. Each route will have its own winner for a total of €1,200 in prizes.
When visitors arrive at Cabinteely Park, Bikefest will present a spectacular cycle themed festival event featuring Bike Tune Ups, Bling UR Bike decorations, Cycling Information, Food and Smoothies made by our pedal powered Smoothie maker. Strolling entertainment will come from “Cycle Circus” performers and Street Entertainers.
The centrepiece of Bikefest will be a unique cycle stunt show from Ben Savage’s Savage Skills. Savage Skills riders have set Guinness World Records and won World Championships with their unrivalled abilities on two wheels. They will present four shows, on the half hour of 20 minutes duration during the event. Between shows Savage Skills riders will teach visitors safe cycling skills on their custom BMX track.
Entry to the event is free but please remember there is limited parking in the area around Cabinteely Park so please cycle, walk or use public transport to get to the event.
Bikefest is organised by dlr Events and is an initiative by Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council. Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council has a huge variety of events planned for the year.
