    Cork Cycling Festival - 19th to 27th July

    There's a cycling festival in Cork starting Saturday week (19th July.) This isn't to be confused with Cork Bike Week a few weeks ago which had a lot of involvement from schools.

    This has a range of events. A friend's highlight was the Olde Schoole Cycle, where people got up in olden years' garb and cycled around the city looking spiffy. On the opening day there's bike mechanic workshops where they'll show you how to fix basic things on your bike (I'm planning on going to that.) There's also loads of cycle tours, heading off around the county pretty much every second day. And then there's a bbq at the end of it all. It looks good, and I know someone who was involved with it a few years ago (but haven't kept in contact with her.)

    All the details are here. http://www.corkcyclingfestival.com/events/
    I know something that will blow your minds. I can't tell you and I can't tell you why I can't tell you. You'll know soon and then I'll be confirmed right.

          Probably next year or the year after next they will take some stopping"

              If the asshole Lance Armstrong wannabes could stay in on the ****ing road that would be greatly appreciated by all I think.

                One thing that drives me spare, as one who cycles myself, is paired atseholes riding abreast.

                FFS, get in the slipstream, give each other a tow, and don't block traffic, all in one!

                  It's not even to motorists, it's the way they act with 'inferior' cyclists. A friend of mine has given it up after nearly getting killed on 2 occasions by an mini pleathon of wannabe armstrongs.

                  Its a fantastic past time, especially in our part of the world, but the pretend pros should be boobytrapped by brick wall around a corner.
