Break out the bikes and cycle on down to Eamonn Deacy Park this weekend, as kids can go free for Friday’s Galway United game if they cycle.
Galway United will play Athlone Town this Friday, May 20, with Galway holding the home ground.
In a partnership with Galway Cycling Campaign, the club are offering free entry for kids, and a €10 concession price for adults who travel on two wheels.
Leave your bike with the valets from Galway Cycling Campaign in a specially cordoned off area of the car.
Register online at eventbrite to take part in this healthy event, and enjoy what promises to be part of a cracking weekend for local sports.
The first 40 cycling children to register will get a BikeWeek funded refreshment snack and drink in the stadium.
Brite Mobility have also donated staff who can give your bike a nice wash down while you enjoy the match.
Galway United are revved up for the coming game, now on a six win streak after last week’s 4-0 victory over Wexford at Ferrycarrig Park.
They’re now tied with Cork City at the top of the First Division table, and manager John Caulfield is well aware of the coming game’s significance.
“We are playing a rejuvenated Athlone team under Dermot Lennon,” he said to the club’s media team. “They were narrowly beaten by Waterford, Longford and Cork in their last couple of matches.”
“Every week brings a tough game, we need to keep up our form and play to the level that we know we can.”
