Dublin Cycle Chic Party & Photo Competition
Dublin Cycle Chic, here we come! I'm arranging a Cycle Chic bash in Dublin in a little over a month. Together with The Royal Danish Embassy in Ireland, Dublin City Council and the Department of Transport. Alchemy Events is arranging the cool gig.
The date? 16 June 2010. The venue? Dublin City Hall.
Git yer stilettos sharpened and yer cravats ironed.

The Cycle Chic event will be held in association with the Dreams on Wheels exhibition and we'll take it one step further. A groovealicious party celebrating Cycle Chic and that fine and good transport option, the humble and gorgeous bicycle.
We've just launched the Dublin Cycle Chic Flickr group and I'd like to invite people to send in photos of Dublin Cycle Chic. In the week before the Dublin Cycle Chic party I'll choose the ones that most adhere to the Cycle Chic pathos and happily dish out some tickets to the event to the winners.

Get snapping. Get documenting the blossoming return of the bicycle - and cycle chic - to the streets of the Irish capital. I'm looking forward to going to Dublin to celebrate the possibilities.
Let's say that this is the goal. These photos are from Dublin, 1961. Citizen Cyclists on bicycles, in style. Vintage Dublin Cycle Chic, if you will. This is where we're headed.
