Bike Week #4

Transport Minister Danny Kennedy joined over 250 commuters who took part in Bike to Work Day this morning (Friday 20 June). Starting at 8am, the Minister and members of the Department’s Cycling Unit gathered at the Gasworks for their traditional Bike Week run where they were joined by participants from the ‘Ride on Belfast’ event, organised as part of the Fred Festival. They cycled en masse to Belfast City Hall where they were welcomed by new Lord Mayor, Nichola Mallon and rewarded with a well-deserved cycling breakfast. Bike To Work Day is one of many cycling events taking place during Bike Week (14 – 22 June) which aim to highlight the numerous health, financial and environmental benefits associated with cycling.
