Dublin Cycling Campaign is launching a poetry competition on the theme of the beloved bicycle.

Joyce-cycle is a pageant of over one hundred participants of all ages on bicycles on the theme of Irish writers, who will be participating in the St. Patrick’s Parade on behalf of Dublin Cycling Campaign.
As we joyfully celebrate the many Irish writers who incorporated the bicycle in their literature, Dublin Cycling Campaign is today launching a poetry competition in collaboration with Poetry Ireland on the theme of bicycles.
There will be a junior under 16 and senior category, with cash prizes ranging between €200 and €500.
It would be preferable if poems were no more than 40 lines, but can be as few lines as you wish.
The final date for submitting your poem is midnight on the 1st March and winners will be announced on the 7th of March.
