Irish speed dating
It’s not the first time the ‘speed’ has been put back into ‘speed dating’.Two years ago, former British professional cyclist Kelli Salone set up dating site Ride2Love to help other freewheeling men and women find love.Perhaps it’s no coincidence that ‘velo’ is an anagram of ‘love’ to begin with.“Škoda have been doing cycling events now for seven years,” tells Ray Leddy, head of marketing at Škoda Ireland.“Over the years, we know of at least six marriages that have occurred as a result of people actually attending our events and coming for a drink afterwards.“So we thought why not just do a special event that revolves around cycling and brings single people together.“We weren’t actually trying to bring single people together before and we got six marriages out of it – what could happen if we tried? I've belonged to other sites, and some of them have cost plenty. " Read what people are saying about Connecting Singles... It's a great way to get better acquainted with members you've met on CS and a great excuse to travel to a place you may not have had the chance to visit alone.
Ranging in age from around 25 - 55, most of the other singletons had heard about the niche event through their cycling clubs.
Unlike regular speed dating, there was the added pressure of keeping it between the ditches as I tried out my best cycling-related chat-up lines on a handsome young Cork chap.“Boy, we need to get you to the bike repair shop, because you’re off the chain,” sadly didn’t quite have the effect I was hoping for.
Happily, I still had “If you were my boyfriend, I promise I’d never tyre of you”, tucked up my jersey sleeve for later on.
