The 2019 Great Dublin Bike ride has been launched in the City with a new home for the event in the Phoenix Park.
There are two routes of 100 KM and 60 KM with a shared 25 KM of coastal views from the North Wall out past Malahide common to both.
Up to 7,000 cyclists are expected to take part with the event having filled in each of the last number of years.
Sites along the way will include the Guinness Storehouse, the Ha’penny Bridge and the 3Arena as cyclists make their way down the Quays before heading north towards Rolestown on the shorter route and as far as Duleek in County Louth for the 100 KM route.
This year’s event will once again be a key part of the Dublin Sportsfest, linking sport and physical activities around the city taking place over seven days.
It is expected that a number of additional elements will be added to the Great Dublin Bike ride as part of this now that it has moved base from Smithfield to the more spacious surroundings of a start in the Phoenix Park.
The Great Dublin Bike Ride takes place on Sunday 29th September and is backed by Dublin City Council, Sport Ireland and Cycling Ireland, all members of sport for Business Community and we will be running a number of features on it as the summer progresses, starting off with our attendance next week at Velo-City, the major European Cycling Conference drawing thousands from across the continent to the Convention Centre.
