The new electric accessible cycles, purchased through the Covid Recovery & Revitalise Programme, will be used during these events; participants will also be there for the official unveiling of the recently acquired Mobile Accessible Changing Units. 

Mayor of Causeway Coast and Glens, Councillor Steven Callaghan welcomed the events saying: “I am delighted that Council can offer these accessible family events to its residents.
