On your bike.
With the introduction of greenways, protected lanes and the promise of ambitious plans for our city, travelling by bike is set to become more convenient and safer as time goes on.
But there is plenty to do on your bike besides getting from point A to point B.
This weekend, Cork Cycling Campaign is hosting a relaxed social tour of Cork City’s spectacular street art as part of Cork Bike Week 2022. You’ll get to know the story behind each iconic work and uncover some hidden gems that aren’t well known to the public.
If you’re feeling nervous about getting back in the saddle, don’t worry. Cork Cycling Campaign has promised the tour will be “a very slow and easy cycle particularly suitable for less confident cyclists.”
What a weekend… A fun Cargo Bike open day and successful @lee2sea 'Water Relay' bringing water from Inniscarra to Crosshaven ✅ 🎉
Full details coming soon! pic.twitter.com/wIT4Hp1H8K

Cork Cycling Campaign was set up in 1999 by people eager to make Cork city and county more cycle-friendly. Bike Week was initially launched in 2009 to raise the profile of cycling as a healthy and fun mode of transport and physical activity. Over the last decade, the campaign has become an important voice for cyclists nationally, with the aim of improving infrastructure and accessibility.
The graffiti tour starts at Marina Market by Cortado at 12.45 pm on Saturday, May 21st. It’s completely free too so there’s no excuse not to pop along.
