...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...

The organisers said: “Join us for a fun community cycle through Blackrock Park, past Booterstown marsh to Merrion Gates and back again. A leisurely 4km cycle for all ages and abilities. A reward awaits all those who complete the full loop! The cycle will start and finish at the Blackrock Park bandstand.”

They added: “All ‘cycles’ welcome: bikes, balance bikes, trishaws, rickshaws, trikes, recumbents, e-bikes, cargo bikes & more! There will be marshals on the day to keep the group safe for the on-road section. All participants under 18 should be under parent/guardian supervision.”
