Bike Week was celebrated in St Clare’s Primary School, Manorhamilton by 5th and 6th classes, who could cycle, taking a spin out the new Greenway out the Carrick Road, with teachers and parents accompanying them. A healthy 12K ride out and back.

Over 50 participants took part, and as part of the healthy eating programme enjoyed fruit and drinks when they returned to the school, with a small side order of hot dog.

Many of the children in the school have been undertaking the Cycle Right programme to give them the skills needed to cycle safely.

Many have returned to school from the summer break on their bikes, and whilst the weather holds that is being actively encouraged.

During the week of Bike Week, they refreshed their skills on the bikes, and also basic bike check and maintenance. They also benefitted from a visit by Community Garda Declan on safe cycling on the roads.

As always, the school really appreciates the support afforded to us by Manorhamilton Sportshub, and Leitrim Sport Partnership.
