Great Dublin Bike Ride

The inaugural Great Dublin Bike Ride takes place on Sunday 13th September 2015 at 8.00am. The ride has both 60km and 100km routes that both start and end in Smithfield.

I’m not taking part in the ride myself, but I am volunteering on the day. Along with all the other volunteers, race marshals from Cycling Ireland, Gardai, and security people there will be a cast of thousands (okay, maybe hundreds) working to help the ride take place safely and successfully.

Long Way Home

I had cheerfully announced to my wife during the day that tonight I was going to take the “Long Way Home”. She was heading for the gym after work, and in an effort to feel a bit virtuous myself, I was going to extend my usual bike commute.

Phoenix Park

Phoenix Park is one of the best places in Dublin to visit for a leisurely cycle.

Borrowed Bike

Following on from Monday’s explosive wheel incident, I am now without my bike!
