Our first socially distanced Monthly Cycle!

Event info 

We’re back for our first socially distanced Monthly Cycle! Please join us, especially if you or someone you know is new to cycling since lockdown. ❤️

We’ll meet on Saturday, 13 June 2020, at 2pm at the Criminal Courts building on Parkgate Street. You can check the location at this Google Maps link

From there, we’ll take a gentle spin around the Phoenix Park, stopping off along the way for chats, coffee and nibbles.

We’re hoping that the cafés in the Phoenix Park will be open to customers, but if you can we encourage you to embrace your picnicking ways, and bring along some supplies from home: sandwiches, fruit, treats, water – whatever your heart’s desire. 

So, dust down your wheels, check your brakes, make your sangiches & flasks of tay, prep your sunglasses and rain coats!

Please also like and share our Facebook event and Twitter updates. 😀

Covid info 

Please refer to our new Monthly Cycles Covid Page for full details and links to official guidance. 

Background 

Ireland is now in Phase 2 of the Roadmap for Reopening Society and Business. The message is to stay local: travel either within your county, or within 20 kilometres of home. Continue to avoid unnecessary journeys. 

Under the government roadmap, organised outdoor exercise, sporting, cultural or social activities of up to 15 people may take place – subject to appropriate social distancing and hygiene measures. 

Each person must assume personal responsibility for their own health and safety, and to always consider the health and well-being of family, friends and wider society. 

On the day of our Monthly Cycles event

  • Remain physically distant at a minimum of 2 metres 
  • Bring: disinfectant/gel for hands; gloves; masks 

On the day, we ask that everyone observes a minimum distance of 2 metres apart (except for participants who are from the same household). 

While cycling, please ensure to keep this distance between the person cycling beside you. Please also ensure that you keep a good distance between you and the person cycling in front of you, and avoid being in their ‘slipstream’. 

If you can, please bring your own disinfectant/gel for hands, your own gloves, your own masks. We are aware that not everyone can access or afford these items, so we will have a limited amount of supplies with us on the day. Please don’t hesitate to get in touch in advance (best is to send us a Direct Message on Twitter), or on the day when we meet.

  • Wash/disinfect hands: how to use correct technique  
  • Gloves: how to put on & remove 
  • Masks: how to put on & remove 

About Monthly Cycles 

We’re a Dublin-based initiative, with the aim of bringing women in Dublin together each month for an inclusive cycle around the city. We hope to reach both those who are comfortable cycling, and those who are not quite there yet.

We welcome everyone to join us, of all ages and abilities – there’s no pressure! These are social events, with the added bonuses of exploring the capital, sharing experiences, exchanging tips, and (very importantly) enjoying cake. 🙂

Please note: While we welcome all abilities, please be aware that participation is at your own risk.
