Some spooktacular sites will be seen on Dublin’s first Nite Rider charity cycling tour taking place Saturday 26th May. Nite Rider, the mystery cycling tour will saddle up, lead by one of Dublin Bus Ghost Tours master story tellers, and spin around Dublin’s most haunted hotspots in aid of The Soul of Haiti Foundation.
An all ticket event, cyclists are asked to gather at Smithfield Square from 8pm to check-in for the event which will set off at 9pm sharp. At 12km the cycle is set to take around three hours and finish in time for a midnight snack and coffee from Java Republic. Prizes are up for grabs for cyclists with the best lit bike on the night, and although it is not compulsory ghoulish attire is advised.
With over a thousand years of history Dublin holds more chilling myths and folklore than most cities. This unique event is ideal for those who believe exploring some of Dublin’s paranormal sites and cycling through un-consecrated graveyards an ideal Saturday night out! A keen history buff will also enjoy this event as cyclists will learn about bloodcurdling buildings and walkways that Dubliner’s walk by everyday.
