Irish Green Ride March 2015 art

Erin go Bragh!

Did you know the first St. Patrick’s day parade was not held in Ireland but in Boston, Massachusetts in 1737. And did you know the first bike ride outside of Ireland with the Lord Mayor of Dublin was held in San Jose, California in 2012. Well, there ya go.

This month’s theme is about all things Irish; green, leprechauns, four leaf clovers, rainbows, pots o’ gold,  and for one big night San Jose will be Dublin on wheels.
