National Bike week was celebrated by the Sligo County Council Age Friendly Programme and the LCDC Healthy Sligo Programme by taking the St Johns Trishaw bike out for a spin.

Sligo Sport and Recreation Partnership received funding for the Trishaw bike under the Healthy Ireland (Round 2) Programme.  The Trishaw is located permanently at St. Johns Hospital for use by the residents and prior to Covid-19 volunteers from the Innisfree Wheelers took residents out in it on a regular basis.  As restrictions lift and in accordance with Public Health Advice all look forward to seeing the Trishaw on the move again.
