Hook ups and speed dating
Well then, you’re in luck, as ŠKODA are hosting their second ever ŠPEED DATING cycling event on Saturday 29th June, from 8.30am in Avon Rí, Blessington, Co.
Wicklow.ŠKODA ŠPEED DATING operates similar to the format of traditional speed dating, were participants have a short time period to speak to a potential partner before a bell rings and they move onto the next prospect.
Speaking ahead of the event, Ciara Breen, Events and Sponsorship Manager at ŠKODA Ireland, said: “Last year we ran our first ever ŠPEED Dating event.
It was a huge success with numerous couples matched and two couples that we know of still together nearly 12 months later.
ŠKODA ŠPEED DATING is comparable with two lines of cyclists; males on one side and females on the other.
This forms a group of cyclists commonly known as a peloton in cycling circles.
The peloton is always moving with a cycling marshal sounding a bell or whistle every 3 to 4 minutes, at which point the male cyclist move up to the next female cyclist to deliver his pitch.
