‘Bike Week’ is a celebration and promotion of the benefits of cycling and takes place from Saturday 14th May to Sunday 22nd May. Cycling is one of the most sustainable forms of travel and a family friendly activity. As a transport option cycling has one of the lowest impacts on the planet and the environment, impacting positively on air and noise pollution.

Launching Laois’ ‘Bike Week 2022′, Conor Bergin MCC, Cathaoirleach of Laois County Council said, “’Bike Week’ is a great opportunity to celebrate all things cycling in Laois with an exciting programme of events taking place around the county. I am delighted to see ‘Portlaoise and Portarlington Cycle Bus coming soon too, as this innovative and impactful new initiative will make cycling more accessible for school goers in these communities.”
