Bike Week is a celebration and promotion of all that's great about bikes and cycling.

It is held over a week in June each year with bike themed events organised by local authorities, community groups and cycling groups throughout Ireland.

In Cashel, the Rock Pedallers, with support from The Tipperary Sports Partnership through funding from the Department of Art, Sports & Tourism, will host a range of events on Friday, June 16, and Saturday June 17.  

From humble beginnings, the Rock Pedallers Cycling Club Cashel has grown into a very strong club with over 75 members at all levels from the leisure cyclist to the competitive racer.

So here are Bike Week 2017 activities in Cashel

All are open to non-members and members alike.
