Cycle to Work – 30DaysofBiking Day 2

Safely locked up in the bike shed at work. #30daysofbiking

It’s day 2 of the 30 Days of Biking, and I rode into work today. I live only about 1km from my office, and so most days I’ll walk to work. It’s sometimes easier to walk than ride, when you take into account all the faff of unlocking and locking at each end. However the ride is always much more fun – and having the bike at work allows me to go for a longer ride on the way home!

I’m quite lucky that my employer is quite bike-friendly. They provide a secure bike shed for cyclists, and for those who like to exert themselves on the way in, there are also showers and lockers. And they also participate in the Irish government’s Bike to Work scheme, whereby you can buy a bicycle tax-free, saving up to half the price of the bike.
