Family Bike Day at LeisureWorld!
Sunday the 17th of June in association with Cork Bike week, organised by the Cork Sports Partnership we held not one but two family fun bikes days at LeisureWorld Bishopstown and LeisureWorld Churchfield. It was the first year that an event was held at LeisureWorld Churchfield and this is now the third year for this annual event at LeisureWorld Bishopstown.
In Bishopstown we hosted loads of parents and kids for a lovely cycle beside the Curaheen River that runs along a cycle path located beside our facility in Bishopstown. Registration took place from 2.45pm and our staff were on hand to give cyclists face painting and the chance to “bling” their bike with fun decorations. The cycle consisted of a 2km route with an option to repeat a 1k loop (3km total) at a controlled pace to ensure it was suitable for all ages.
On return fun games & activities on the AstroTurf pitches were set up as well as having a bouncy castle and light refreshments available to everyone! We also gave all the families a free family swim pass to use the facility on the day or another time.
In Churchfield, we had load of fun with games and bike skills at the Sam Allen Sports Complex attached to our facility. For it’s first year in operation we were very happy with the turn out and hope to grow this event year on year. The participants had loads of fun and all the families that came were also treated to a family swim pass!
Keep an eye out for these fun events this time next year. It’s a great way to get out and about with the kids.
Thanks to everyone that came and took part 😊
