  • Title: Ten Tips for Safe Cycling in Dublin | Cycling in Dublin
    Descriptive info: Check out ten top tips for safe cycling:.. Your bike should be the right size for you.. As a rule of thumb, your legs should not be fully extended when you are pedalling, and you should be able to reach the ground with ease with your feet when you are slowing or stopped.. Make sure your brakes are in good condition and it is not only a legal requirement but also common sense to have a bell on your bike, in an easily reachable place.. Although it is not required by law, the Road Safety Authority recommends that you wear a cycle helmet and hi-viz clothing.. If you are carrying anything, tie it securely to the back carrier, use the basket, or use panniers.. Carrying  ...   red lights mean stop for cyclists as well!.. Always be alert to what’s happening around you.. Wearing headphones while cycling is not advised.. Trucks have limited visibility.. Avoid positioning yourself on the inside of a left turning HGV.. Remember that on tight turns HGVs often swing right before turning left.. When you brake in an emergency, keep your weight on the saddle.. Apply the back and front brakes evenly.. When cycling at night, it is not only a legal requirement, but a vital safety measure, that you have a white front light, a red back light and a rear reflector.. Also, consider wearing a reflective ‘high-visibility’ jacket or reflective strips on clothing.. These help motorists to see you.. Don’t forget to get your bike serviced regularly..

  • Title: Be a Cycling Super Hero! | Cycling in Dublin
    Descriptive info: Cycle for the Environment.. Cars produce an average of 0.. 3kg of CO2 per km travelled.. Cycling 10km each way to work instead of driving saves an average of 1.. 3 tonnes of greenhouse gas emissions each year and reduces the effects of global warming.. Substituting car trips with bike trips also helps the environment by reducing noise pollution and a long list of nasty chemicals in our air like nitrogen dioxide, carbon monoxide, nitrogen oxides, and hydrocarbons.. Cycle for Your Health.. Cycling is good for you! Studies show that regular cyclists are as fit as the average person 10 years younger, are less likely to suffer from depression and are more likely to sleep better.. Cycling also helps you stay healthy and lose weight.. 18% of Irish people are obese, compared to 10% in the Netherlands and 12% in Denmark.. Countries where cycling is a mainstream mode of transport generally have lower levels of obesity: in 2002, the number of kilometres travelled per person  ...   of town 5 days a week, you’d end up spending €832 a year on the bus, €858 on the dart or €988 on the Luas.. You can easily get a good bike and kit it out for about €300.. Once you’ve bought a bike your transport is free! Did you know that the cost of buying and maintaining a bike is approximately 1% the cost of buying and maintaining a car? So aside from being healthier, benefiting from predictable journey times and helping the environment you save yourself a fortune by cycling.. Do Your Bit for Dublin.. In 2008 €21 million was spent on road maintenance in Dublin City alone.. More cars and heavier vehicles on our roads accelerate the process of wear and tear.. This results in the need for more frequent resurfacing of roads.. Since cycling has a negligible impact on road surface quality, replacing car trips with bike trips could save us all millions in road maintenance costs.. Photo credit:.. ©.. Robert Leftwich..
