Dublin City Council, in collaboration with Fingal County Council, the Office of Public Works, and Dublin Cycling Campaign, has announced the city’s first Bike Disco at the Phoenix Park, a 5km cycle leaving at 8pm Friday, September 23 from the Phoenix Roundabout at Chesterfield Avenue.

The cycle is part of the DCC’s participation in European Mobility Week, the European Commission’s initiative to raise awareness on sustainable urban mobility. The week highlights the value in adopting cleaner transport practices, such as active mobility and public transport. 

Participants are encouraged to decorate their bikes and make them as colourful as possible. There will be bike decoration packs with festival flags and string lights for the first 100 participants who show up at the meeting point on Chesterfield Avenue at the Phoenix Monument. Both experienced and budding cyclists are welcome to take part. There is no need to register in advance, beginners and seasons bikers all welcome. 

A road closure will be in place – both Castleknock and Knockmaroon Gates and a section of Chesterfield Avenue, between Phoenix Roundabout and Castleknock Gate, will be closed from 7-10pm. A diversion route will be in place to facilitate vehicular traffic during the event. Car parking will be available at the Papal Cross Car Park and Phoenix Park Visitor Car Park. 

Check your local council’s social media platforms for related traffic information as some entrances to the Phoenix Park will be temporarily closed to accommodate the event.
