Dublin Cycle News

A couple of interesting cycle-related news stories have been reported in the last day or so. Firstly, that Ireland is having it’s first National Bike Week from the 14th to 21st June, with lots of events encouraging people to cylce more (News Story). And secondly, that Dublin is about to launch a bicycle rental scheme in July – whereby people can borrow a bike for up to half an hour for free (News Story). Luckily, it seems, they have learnt from the failures of other rental schemes, and are asking members to pay a large deposit on the bikes they borrow – to hopefully ensure they don’t all get stolen.
