St Patrick's parade bicycle presence

St Patrick's Parade - Call out for participants!

Dublin Cycling Campaign are excited to announce our 8th year participating in the St. Patrick’s Day Parade. The 2017 theme is “Ireland You Are” and it’s all about reflecting on the type of nation we are - and indeed the type of nation we can or ought to be. We want to show Dublin and the world that cycling is the past, present, and future of our city. With 2017 as the 200th year anniversary of the bicycle, we will be highlighting the evolution of the bicycle and the variety of bicycles used today.  

We have many local groups participating including fashion with Georgia in Dublin, Bikes and Business, Cyclone Couriers, Dirt Monkeys stunt bikes, Marty High Nelly with Penny Farthings and ice cream bikes. It is sure to be good fun!

Any paying member of the Dublin Cycling Campaign is welcomed to join. Haven’t paid your dues? This is a good excuse to become a member! We especially invite Dublin Cycling Campaign members that have cargo bikes, kids with strollers and balance bikes, tandems, recumbent, Bromptons; anything that stands out. We also need volunteers to help transport some of the specialty bicycles using support bikes and trailers provided by River Cycles and volunteers to help coordinate on the day of.
