Dublin Cycling Campaign is hosting a mass cycle along Dublin’s Quays this Sunday to demonstrate support for the Liffey Cycle Route. This fun, free, family-friendly cycle will highlight the need for a safe, segregated cycle route along the Quays, from the Phoenix Park down the the Point Village.

The Liffey Cycle will depart from the Wellington Monument in the Phoenix Park at 11am and then proceed down the Quays in one large convoy of bikes. After a brief pause near the Beckett Bridge we will head to Phibsborough where local residents and Phizzfest will provide music and refreshments outside Bang Bang Café on Leinster Street.

This is a free event and no registration is required. Every type of cyclist, and non-cyclist, is welcome to come along. Marshalling and traffic management will be provided by Dublin Cycling Campaign and the Garda Traffic Corp. For more information please check out Dublin Cycling Campaign’s website.

The Samuel Beckett bridge, turned 90° in ‘open’ configuration alongside Sir John Rogerson’s Quay on the Liffey, Dublin, yesterday.

A rare enough sight, due to become more common with increased river traffic in the weeks ahead.

You may care to peruse a schedule of the bridge’s movements between now and the end of June.
