Bike Ride | Rendezvous with the Breiðholt Poets

Saturday March 26th 2022

Breiðholt has left its mark on the poets that have grown up there, and also moved others that have only stopped by. We bike between points of contact in Breiðholt and recite poems.

The tour starts by the entrance on the south side of the Gerduberg City Library in Breiðholt.  We recommend clothes and bikes that suit the weather conditions. Please, meet up at time. The bike ride takes around 90 min and then we'll warm up our cold fingers at a café in Mjódd at the end of the trip.

Tour leaders: Árni Davíðsson from The Icelandic Cyclists' Federation and literary scholar Björn Unnar Valsson.

Please note that this event is in Icelandic.

We invite you to take part in the monthly bike rides one Saturday morning from January to May.  This new series of events is a cooperative project of the Reykjavik City Library, the cycling education group Hjólafærni á Íslandi and The Icelandic Cyclists' Federation with a grant from Miðborgarsjóður Reykjavíkurborgar.

The bike tours are free of charge and you are all welcome to take part.
