  Lots of events on this weekend throughout Cork City & County as Bike Week continues, including themed art exhibitions and the fun singles and mingles event Tour de Romance on Sunday afternoon.  ‘Revolution’ St John’s Central College as part of Cork Bike Week 2015 are working on an exhibition of large scale prints combining illustration and photography, to promote cycling as an efficient, easy, healthy, eco-friendly alternative in Cork City. With support from Cork City Council, the work will be put on display in The Unitarian Church on Princes St on June 19th & 20th from 10am -5pm both days. The main aim of the event is to promote Cork as a bike friendly city through the art of illustration.  ‘Tour de Romance’ This year’s Bike Week will draw to a close with the popular singles and mingles cycle which will start from outside City Hall at 2pm on Sunday 21st and finishes with a barbeque in the Flying Enterprise, with lots of interactive cycle themed activities in between, to help bikes (and their owners!) make new friends.
