Pre and Post Velo City Cycle Tours

Dublin Cycling Campaign and Cyclist.ie have put together a beautiful selection of country-wide cycle tours. These tours are not part of the Velo-city conference but may interest delegates who never want this Velo-city week to end!

This is your chance to relax, meet local advocates, share a chat and a cycle (and of course a pint!). Including self-guided, local-guided and tour-operated, there is something for everyone’s budget and interest, in Dublin and throughout Ireland!
