Bloomsday Bike Rally

Bloomsday Bike Rally

Today was one of those days that I just happened to be in the right place at the right time. I was walking through the Stephen’s Green centre in Dublin and I happened to notice a bit of commotion out the side door. I walked out only to be greeted by a lot of people dressed up in old clothes on old bikes. It was of course Bloomsday today, and I had wandered into the start of the Bloomsday Bike Rally.

The bike rally is a charity event organised by the Irish Youth Foundation, and you can find out more about it here. According to their website:

Starting on St. Stephen’s Green, the Lord Mayor will join us on the steps of the mansion House for a rousing rendition of “Molly Malone”. The bicycles will ring in unison as our Edwardian ladies and gentlemen continue on their tour of Dublin’s fair city, making pit-stops along the way for some well-deserved refreshments and sandwiches at friendly public houses.

Help Support the Streets of Dublin

The Streets of Dublin Photography Project is an entirely voluntary project. We don’t get paid for doing this, but If you like what we’re doing here and on the Streets of Dublin and want to help keep this going, then you can help by buying one of our Digital Image packs, which make great desktop wallpapers for your computer.

If you’re a media organisation, or designer and want to use any of our images, then selected images from the streets of Dublin are available to License for editorial, commercial and personal use. If there’s something that isn’t in our current archive then let us know and we’ll arrange a license.

You can also find more from the Streets of Dublin project on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook.
