Lights, crossbar, action -- a ghoulish cycle for Haiti

HALLOWE'EN is coming early to Dublin as cyclists are being urged to don their most ghoulish attire for a nighttime charity ride through the city's streets.

While the exact route of the Nite Rider 15km cycle is shrouded in mystery, organisers promise visits to some of the capital's paranormal sites and say entrants will cycle through un-consecrated graveyards.

Our picture by Leon Farrell shows model Jenny Lee in Dublin last night at the launch of the event. The cycle kicks off at 9pm on Saturday May 26 at Smithfield Square and finishes just before midnight, and prizes will be awarded to those cyclists with the best lit bike.

Tickets cost €30 and all proceeds go to The Soul of Haiti Foundation.

The charity was born out of a challenge set for the finalists of the Ernst and Young Irish Entrepreneur of the Year Award to use their expertise to help improve the lives of communities in Haiti in a practical and sustainable way.
