Welcome to Cycle Sense – cycle skills and safety training
We are also up to so much more…
Reuse Month October
For this years Reuse month – October – we were asked to do this video by the Rediscovery Centre and my waste.ie. Cycle Sense is partnering with Cork County Council on this project to reuse bikes. Reuse Bikes project will see bikes rescued from becoming waste to being stripped down for usable parts or kept for rebuilding (with the other reuse parts and new parts and putting back out for cycling) We hope to be up and running by the end of October from our new workshop at the Showgrounds.
Skibbereen Cycle Bus continues every Thursday !
After a prolonged break the Skibbereen Cycle Bus is back! School children will again be able to go to school on their bike by joining a Cycle Bus (a group of cyclists supervised by marshals) This group will stop at various places around town and finish at the 3 schools on route. We enjoyed seeing some of you as part of the Get to school on your own Fuel Campaign. Since then we have introduced a few guidelines to ensure we have a safe and responsible Cycle Bus – so take a look at the Skibbereen Cycle Bus page . Look forward to pedalling with you all!
Remember – The Cycle Bus needs Marshalls. Know anyone who might like to join the team? Contact us if you do.
Also if you would like to join the bus and are not registered ask at your school for forms.
Katie, Ruth and Karl at Cycle Sense would love to see cycling is a normal part of transport and everyday life in Ireland.
