Interested in cycling to work but feel that you lack the skills & confidence to start doing so? Live in Ballincollig and work or study in Cork City centre, UCC, CIT, IDA?? This is for you!
The event will be a "bike train", a large group of cyclists travelling together, mostly in single file. The group's core will be regular commuter cyclists with extensive experience of this particular route. By cycling with novice cyclists in the morning rush hour, experienced cyclists will show how they handle parts of the route & different traffic situations, and will also model safe and considerate cycling habits. For training purposes, the group will briefly stop at a few spots to share advice.
Route: From Ballincollig town centre, along the Carrigrohane/Straight Road, and terminating outside the UCC gates on Western Road. Most of the route has on-road or segregated cycle lanes. Connections to other destinations off the route will be pointed out.
