Date: Sunday June 23rd
Location: Shanganagh Park, Shankill
Time: 12 noon to 4pm
We have our bikes ready for Active 8 this Sunday from 12 noon to 4pm in Shanganagh Park, Shankill. DLR Events and DLR Sports Dept are delighted to announce the return ofActive8 for 2013.
Sunday is the last day of National Bike Week for this year and Shanganagh Park will be a hive of health and fitness with Active8, a free bicycle event to encourage everyone to get out and get fit.
Active8 is an afternoon of cycling events and will include Cycle skills and an obstacle area run by Tarja Owens and Niall Davis of Biking.ie and All Mountain Experience.
The event will also include a cycle trail around the park with medals for all those who complete the course, Bicycle maintenance checks and fixes and an off road cycle trail area coordinated by Biking.ie. Unicycle enthusiasts can learn to ride a unicycle with the DLR events Unicycle instructors and workshops or try cycling a seven-seater bike!
For something a bit different, have a go a making a smoothie with the blender that is powered by pedal power! The faster you pedal the more power you generate and of course the resident DLR Events DJ will be belting out summer tunes all afternoon.
The idea behind Active 8 is to build a habit of regular exercise in a safe environment for children and bring back the bike in anticipation of long bright spring and summer days! Like all DLR Events, Active8 is an initiative by Dun Laoghaire Rathdown County Council and is a family friendly event.
Ireland’s annual National Bike Week is taking place from 18th until 23rd June.
