Bloomsday bike ride

Today is Bloomsday, the day that events described in the novel Ulysses by James Joyce occur. "The day involves a range of cultural activities including Ulysses readings and dramatisations, pub crawls and general merriment... Enthusiasts often dress in Edwardian costume to celebrate Bloomsday, and retrace Bloom's route around Dublin via landmarks such as Davy Byrne's pub."

FABB's Fionnuala Quinn was asked to help put together a unique celebration of the event, a "leisurely bicycle ride followed by breakfast at the Irish Embassy." As you can see from the photo at the right, the bicycle attire was rather unique. It was a nice touch that they used Capital Bikeshare bikes. For photos from the ride see Megabeth's photostream.
