The festival, organised by Dublin City Libraries and now in its eighth year, will take place largely online as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic, but will still play host to an international and domestic line up of speakers and panels.

Great Dublin Charity Bike Ride takes place on September 27th, 2020.

This year the event will take place to solely support the charity sector.

Due to government restrictions caused by Covid-19, the 2020 event will take place virtually with a 20km family ride, beginner-friendly 60km and a more challenging 100km ride to choose from.

Select the distance which best suits you and complete the ride in your local area, all for a good cause.

A network of cycling and walking groups have launched ‘Get To School On Your Own Fuel’ campaign.

All through summer 2020 during the Covid-19 pandemic, children have been out cycling in their local neighbourhoods, going to parks, meeting friends, and enjoying the freedom and fresh air.

With the return to classrooms in September, cycling and walking groups around the country are highlighting the opportunities for more children and students to cycle, walk, scoot or skate safely to school.

Promotions will also take place in many locations, with opportunities to get bicycles checked by qualified mechanics, as well as taking part in a national scavenger hunt competition.

Dublin Simon Community is calling on all households to join the Dublin Simon Staycation and camp out for the last weekend in August!

We are inviting you to camp out in the garden, the balcony or even the living room this August 28th & 29th and harness those holiday vibes.

Treat the kids to one last hurrah by having a water fight, building a fort, going for a picnic or grilling a BBQ.

End your fun-filled day by sleeping under the stars and help teach your kids about those less fortunate than themselves while raising much-needed funds for Dublin Simon Community’s vital life-saving services.
