Mayorstone

Mayorstone Car-Free Day – Sunday 22nd 2019

Let’s get out and experience Mayorstone in a different way. Bring out your kids, scooters, bikes, pets, and chalk!

At the request of Mayorstone Coolraine Residents’ Association, An Garda Síochána (Mayorstone) have agreed to the closure of roads surrounding Mayorstone Green (Mayorstone Drive and Mayorstone Avenue). (See road closure info below)

When

11am to 1pm on Sunday 22nd September 2019

Where

At Mayorstone Green on Mayorstone Drive, Limerick

What

Cycle / Scoot / Walk around the green

Since the roads will be free of moving vehicles, cycle and scoot around the green in a relaxed atmosphere.

Free Bike Checkup

Do you have a bike sitting in your garage, unused, and needing some love? It might be for a small reason that the bike is not usable. Get back on your bike!

A bike mechanic has volunteered to give free bike checkups. We’ll help with any fixes we can on the day, or at least recommend what work is needed to get you back on your bike!

Free Bike and Scooter Exchange

Do you have unwanted bikes, balance bikes, or scooters? Or looking for one?

Bring your unwanted bikes and scooters and register them with us on the day. If you’re looking for a bike or scooter, register your interest with us. (If your bike or scooter are not taken by the end of the day, we’ll ask you to please take them back.)

Chalk Art

Bring your chalk, and decorate!

Community Cycle Bus to Limerick Cyclovia

Limerick Cyclovia is the chance for your family to experience Limerick’s streets without cars. Finish with a street party on O’Connell Street 2 to 4pm. Info about that event here.

A community cycle bus will depart Mayorstone Green at 1.15pm.

We will join up with Limerick Northside families in Shelbourne Park at 1.30pm, and continue as a cycle bus to the city centre.

Suitable for those who can cycle without stabilisers.

What if it’s raining?

We’ll be outside, unless there are torrential downpours.

Who

Bring your friends and neighbours. This is a public space, and so is open to all.

Ideal if you are attending the Kids Park Run that morning in Shelbourne Park!

And just in time after the Ireland v. Scotland rugby world cup game.

If you’re visiting Mayorstone for this day by car, we suggest you park at Shelbourne Park. If parking in Mayorstone (areas without road closures), please park off the footpath.

We are looking for volunteers to be present at three barrier locations, please contact e@eoinoc.net or a Mayorstone Coolraine residents’ committee member.
