...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...

Organisers said online that social distancing and masks are required. It is support by Cork Healthy Cities, Playful Paradigm, Irish Doctors for the Environment, I Bike Cork and Pedestrian Cork.

The event will include Open for Play with street chalking.

The event was originally due to take place in March and is now rescheduled for Sunday. Previously, Cork-based cargo bicycle owner Tom Hennessy said: “Cargo bike owners will be down the Marina showing off their bicycles. If you’re considering a move to cargo then this is the perfect opportunity talk to those who have already made the move.”
