Bikes!

What a fabulous spring day in our lovely city!

A perfect day for my first time using the wonderful Dublin Bikes scheme.  Having signed up last year, I'd somehow never gotten around to using the bikes.  So today, when activities took me from Abbey St to Kildare St, then the National Archives on Bishop St and back to Eden Quay, using the bikes seemed a no-brainer.   Cycling through the city, despite the cars, I felt I'd travelled back in time and half expected to see Leopold Bloom or Rashers wandering nearby.  I cycled in Stephen's Green too, which was a delight, even if I wasn't entirely sure if it was allowed!  I only did short journeys today so it cost me a total of nothing to zip around the city.

It's a very long time indeed since I last was on a bicycle.

And unsurprisingly, it is just like riding a bike.
