MEA Bike Week

Thursday, June 14, 2018

BRC members were out in force last Monday night at the Mid and East Antrim Bike Week event at Ballymena Showgrounds. The event involved activities set up by Sustrans and Disability Sport NI, and also gave the public an opportunity to ride Disability Bikes and tandems. There was also a Family Cycle set up around the Showgrounds Complex. It also gave BRC an opportunity to launch their 'Sofa to Saddle' Programme. This 6 week programme aims to attract beginners into the sport, the aim being for participants to complete a 25km cycle by the final week. Over 30 participants have signed up already!!


The event was a roaring success, many thanks to Katrina McCaughan, Lesley McLaughlin, Colin Rodden and Susan Lynn from MEA Council for their hard work in organising the event. Also many thanks to all BRC members who helped with the event. Thanks for supporting your club!
