Lord Mayor of Dublin Daithí de Róiste said, “I’m delighted to lead the Pedalpalooza Cycle Parade this Bike Week. Bike Week celebrates the benefits of cycling and encourages new people to take part. The cycle parade is a unique opportunity for people of all ages and abilities to take part in a traffic-free cycle through city streets. There’s a wonderful programme of activities taking place in Fairview Park after the cycle, so I encourage families to come along and join in the fun.”

Ailish Lally, Walking & Cycling Officer with Dublin City Council’s traffic department, said: “I’m excited about cycling through the traffic-free streets of Dublin with people from all over the city and to go on to enjoy bike-themed fun for people of all ages and abilities at the Pedalpalooza festival in Fairview Park. Be sure to join us to celebrate all things bike this Bike Week.”

Active Cities is all about getting Dubliners to become more active, so we would encourage everyone of all ages and abilities to join in our cycle parade.”
