...I'm sorry to disrupt you while you're reading this article, but without messages like this, IrishCycle.com's reader-funded journalism won't survive. With 676k views so-far this year, it's not just "avid cyclists" that this website reaches. But the number of subscribers is around 0.6% of readers. This large gap between readers/subscribers is standard for non-paywall reader-supported journalism, but IrishCycle's journalism needs more support. Don't delay, support monthly or yearly today. Now, back to the article...

‘Cycling through the rages’ is said to be “a group show celebrating cycling but also an artists’ response to challenges faced by cyclists today”. It is curated by Kelly Ratchford and Olivier Cornet.

It will launch at 3pm, Sunday 7 July 2019 at the Olivier Cornet Gallery, 3 Great Denmark Street, Dublin 1 and the gallery says that all are welcome. Guest speaker at the launch will be Frank McDonald, author, journalist and former environment editor of The Irish Times.

The show will run until the 4th of August.

According to the Olivier Cornet Gallery, the exhibition will feature new work by gallery artists Kelly Ratchford and Hugh Cummins and the following invited artists: Michael Bruce Weston, Colin Eaton, Kelvin Mann, Kieran McBride, Cecilia Moore and Gro Thorsen.
