On Saturday at 2pm we are having a Bike to the Beach event where we’ll meet at the Sails sculpture in Clontarf and cycle along the seafront cycle path to Dollymount Strand.
We’ll host a series of games and fun events on the beach until around 5pm. The event is free and open to all, and everyone is advised to bring a picnic…
…On Sunday at 10.30am we will host our second ever Liffey Cycle to show support for the proposed Liffey Cycle Route; a safe, segregated cycle path running along the North Quays from the Phoenix Park all the way to the Point Village.
Over 500 people turned out for our first Liffey Cycle back in April so we hope even more will attend this Sunday. We will meet at the Phoenix Monument, in the middle of the Phoenix Park, at 10.30am on Sunday and then cycle down along the Liffey Quays together….
…Our third cycling event of the weekend is the National Cargobike Championships which will take place in the Phoenix Park from 1pm on Sunday. This is a fun event which shows off the variety of cargobikes that are available in Ireland these days.
Details for all our cycling events this weekend can be found on Dublin Cycling Campaign’s website at link below. Thank you!
Hundreds of cyclists took to the streets to highlight the need for a safer cycle infrastructure.
Kieran Ryan of the Dublin Cycling Campaign, writes:
The event, organised by Dublin Cycling Campaign, involved more than 500 cyclists of all ages and abilities riding their bikes from the start point in the Phoenix Park all the way to the Point Village in Dublin’s Docklands.
Cycling has been in the news for the wrong reasons recently with five cyclists losing their lives on Irish roads in the first three months of this year.
A further ten cyclists died in the Republic of Ireland in 2016 and this worrying trend of cyclist fatalities has highlighted the need for proper, safe cycle infrastructure such as the proposed Liffey Cycle Route.
Dublin Cycling Campaign’s vision is for a vibrant, living city where everyone can safely enjoy everyday walking and cycling.
