Dublin City Lunch Time Cycle – 17th June Dublin Docklands
Possibly the most famous event of Bike Week, the Dublin city lunch time cycle has been running for a number of years and again The Bike Institute will be part of the opening festivities down at the Docklands on Wednesday. For those that are new to the lunch time cycle, here’s what bikeweek.ie have to say:
“On the day Grand Canal Square will turn into a bustling bicycle market with an assortment of vendors peddling bike related goodies and food vendors dispensing an array of tasty lunchtime options.
Participants are invited to meet at Grand Canal Square at 12.45pm for the 5km/30 minute bike ride which will take a new route encompassing the quays and East Link Bridge.
Participants are encouraged to pre-register at lunchtimecycle.eventbrite.ie the first 500 to pre-register will receive exciting goodie bags on the day. In addition everyone who pre registers will be entered into a draw for an iPad Mini!”
This year The Bike Institute will be providing FREE BIKE CHECKS for those taking part and will have an awesome display set up. So get down there early to make the most of one of the best events of the week.
