  1. I dont know if the organisers contacted irishcycle or not but a days notice of an event like this is not of much use to anyone

  2. It was my fault I didn’t cover it before publishing the article last night — sorry about the late coverage. I was aware of the event for at least a week or more.

    I was delayed in covering it, but thought it was best to cover it on Wednesday night rather than not covering it at all.

  3. The event is organised by a group of busy volunteers who only decided to do this a couple of weeks ago. We own the blame for the short notice.

    There is a decent sized group signed up. Hopefully we will run it giving better notice next year. For people interested on what’s going on over the weekend, you’ll find information on Twitter (@CycleHackDublin) and Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/CycleHackDublin).

  4. Cyclist.ie publicised the event on its social media platforms as soon as it knew about it.
