A Night of Cycling and Stargazing

Thursday, July 19, 2018
Dunsink Observatory

Dublin Cycling Campaign is thrilled to be teaming up the Festival of Curiosity to bring you a night of easy(-ish!) cycling and stargazing in a wonderful location not far from the city centre.

We will meet in town at 8.30pm outside the entrance to Smock Alley Theatre on Wood Quay on the South Quays of the Liffey and will be back into the metropolis after midnight. Details of the stargazing can be read here (and you can ignore the ‘sold out’ notification on that page if you are a cycling stargazer…). In terms of the route, after a short cycle along the quays, we will travel via Phibsborough and onto the lovely motor traffic free Royal Canal Greenway via Ashtown and then on to Dunsink.

Keep an eye on our Facebook page and this web page for further details to be announced over the coming days. In the meantime, be sure to give your bike a quick once-over in advance of the event - even just to pump tyres and oil chains properly - and, crucially, to dig out some good quality lights!
