I am a subscriber on Dublin bikes, but never used it. Its handy to have in case of an emergency to get thru traffic etc.
As far as being an indicator for how many cyclists there are it is still good though. You are still a cyclist correct? I also have a subscription and very rarely use it since I mostly use my own bike. I doubt very many people have Dublin Bikes subscriptions but never cycle at all.
You might think that, but I imagine there are plenty of people who see this is reason to get traffic moving by getting rid of cyclists and bus lanes and reducing the number of pedestrian crossings and adding more roads and eliminating that impossible to obey 30kph limit. I've seen all those views expressed on boards.
I used to be. Kinda given it up lately.
I read a while ago that if electric vehicles really take off, supermarkets and malls would end up competing to recharge them during the time they were parked outside; that is, if you didn't offer customers a free recharge (also envisioned as being solar powered in the article I read), you'd lose them.
Sounded plausible when I read it anyway.
More bad weather on the way folks, only impacts drivers though, so it'll be fine for cycling and walking.
Should increase their commute in by a factor of 2. I will enjoy spending a 1/4 of the time getting warmed up and healthier, and then having a lovely cuppa before starting. Smug factor: 4/5
expect the words m50, vehicle, delays to feature as buzz words tomorrow morning.
It's mainly in the west. Independent is terrible for weather. Beautiful.sunny day but a bit cold. Bus is warm though.
You wouldn't get many clicks if your headline was "Weather will be a bit colder than usual tomorrow."
You might get a bit more respect though.
True, but the paper is now just a rag. Better off going with the forecasts on the weather forum on boards.
Each to their own. Just cycling in the city for me is not worth it. Now outside the city its brillant.
"We sexed up a fairly mundane weather forecast. You wouldn't believe what happened next".
I know you weren't having a go. Papers will always do the doomsday weather, just to sell papers.
The reason I don't like cycling in the city, its just alot of hassle and not relaxing. So I just relax on the bus and look at netflix or read a book.
I do cycle some weekends, not enough as I do more running instead. But now the weather will get better it be off to the parks with the kids on their bikes.
