Funding for National Bike Week 2017 Events in Meath!
Meath Local Sports Partnership is currently inviting applications from groups for funding to assist with the organisation of a cycling themed event during Bike Week 2017, which will take place from 10th to 18th June.
Bike Week is a cross-community effort to highlight cycling as a fun, cost effective and healthy way not only to travel but to be physically active. The objective of Bike Week is to celebrate cycling in all its forms and to get more people participating in cycling.
The type of groups which may apply are community groups, voluntary organisations, schools, cycling clubs, active retirement groups, community childcare service providers, work places or any group that wishes to organise a bike related event on a ‘not for profit basis’ during Bike Week 2017.
Examples of possible Bike Week events include (but are not limited to):
• Guided bike tour of a town/village. These can be themed, for example, heritage, gardens, or food trips.
• Cycles from your school to a local amenity on cycle to school/work Wednesday (14th June) for bike based games such as treasure hunts and slow bicycle races;
• A midsummer night/dawn cycle
• Bike maintenance workshops
• Bike art exhibition
• Bike school art competition, quiz or drama
• Family fun cycle
The list is endless!
Grants available may be somewhere in the range of €100 to €350 per successful group/event, depending on applications received and the nature of those applications.
Completed applications should be e-mailed to firstname.lastname@example.org or, alternatively, application forms can be posted to Bike Week Coordinator, Meath LSP, Enterprise Centre, Trim Rd, Navan, Co. Meath.
