Clonakilty Bicycle Festival virtually pedalled off its 10th year

NEWS IN BRIEF: The Clonakilty Bicycle Festival — rebranded as the Clon Bike Fest — pedalled off its 10th year last night.

Mainly virtually for second year in a row due to Covid, the festival will include a screening of a short film from the late Paddy Cahill, who was a film maker and cycling campaigner. It also includes a Zoom-based cycle for the brave and local safety checks.
