News in brief: Belfast cyclists ride on for free breakfast

Belfast is to be taken over twice tomorrow by the all-powerful Northern Ireland cycling revolution lobby group, with both a morning and lunchtime cycle planned for the city.

Ride on Belfast is now in its fifth year and is going strong — unlike one of the former highlights of Bike Week in Dublin, the Lunch Time cycle which died a horrible death due to objections from the Gardai relating to traffic disruption.

...I'm sorry to disrupt you while you're reading this article, but without messages like this,'s reader-funded journalism won't survive. With nearly 1/2 million views and 300k readers so-far this year, it's not just people who are dedicated to cycling that this website reaches. However, the number of subscribers is around 0.6% of readers. While having a large gap between readers/subscribers is standard for non-paywall reader-supported journalism, IrishCycle's journalism needs more support. Don't delay, support monthly or yearly today. Now, back to the article...

The Breakfast Run will start from College Park East (Botanic Avenue behind QUB) at 8am and finish up with a free breakfast at Belfast City Hall, provided by Belfast City Council and Travelwise NI. While the lunchtime cycle will start at Belfast City Hall for a sharp departure at 12.30pm.

...That's the end of the article. Keep scrolling if you want to the comments, but *NEEDS* readers like you to keep it that way. It only requires a small percentage of readers to give a bit each month or every year to keep's journalism open to all. Thank you.
