Speakin’ of 2014 events in Belfast, what about the Giro?
That’s a strange idea, starting the “Giro” race in Belfast! In wonder will it start out from Little Italy (near the “Half Bap” in the Docks / York St area)? (see article on Little Italy here: http://oldbelfastdistricts.rushlightmagazine.com/bapitaly.html)
Did ye hear about the Belfastman who didn’t believe the “Giro” was an Italian bicycle race?
He thought it was a “Czech” event!!
(It’s one of me own!)
Groan indeed! The Giro was class.
