Get involved in Westmeath Bike Week 2023

Bike Week: It’s going to be off the chain (but in a good way)!!

It’s back and it’s bigger and better than ever.

The celebration of all things cycling, and two or three-wheel related, will kick off on Saturday, May 13th and end on Sunday, May 21st.

This year, the Westmeath Sports Partnership is delighted to be able to support thirty events taking place right across the county.

From ice-cream cycles (yum!) to Cycle On Wednesday, there is something for everyone this year to get involved with in their local community.

Below you will find a list of the activities planned across the county including our own Bike Week Cycling Challenge which could net you a €25 voucher for a bike shop of your choice in the county.

Bike Week 2023, well, it’s as easy as riding a bike.
