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!
Velo-city Community Events
The aim of the festival is to celebrate the locality for its wonderful cycling routes, to bring people together to learn about the future of cycling in the area, to build a community that can be involved in developing the area and to have some fun. It’s lining up to be a great weekend of festival fun with cycling, art, music, food and camping. All events are free. Check out this gorgeous video from the 2018 event.
