The weather is absolutely beautiful; fall is such a beautiful season here. The trees are starting to change colors. It’s a little chilly. I wanted to do is really give an easy way for share one of my favorite ways of getting around Dublin which is actually through the Dublin bike system. So if you don’t have time to walk but still want to be outside and get a fresh air, Dublin bikes is one of the best ways to get around But essentially what it does is, it enables you to check out a bike at one of the many stations throughout the city and thereabout think there’s a station about every 300 meters. There are always been pretty close proximity to one of them and what you can do is you’ll pick it up at one station?
You’ll be able to grab the bike and you know some cycles for every are trying to go and then once you at your destination, You simply find a station to return it and they can always pick it up on the way to go. The nice thing about it is sometimes you’re not quite sure what you’re going to get into for the rest of the day and you don’t want to have to have the bike with you and continue to take from place to place. Similarly sometimes it starts raining, and you know you want the flexibility to be able. Okay, just hop in it hop on a Louis or hop on dark or hop on a taxi whatever it may be so. Let me just explain a bit about how the system works and really tall cost-effective.
It is so if you’re visiting here, and you can actually get a three-day pass all you have to do is go up to some select mm5 stations not all of them have it so make sure to visit the Dublin bikes website. But there are stations that will allow you with a credit card to buy the pass and essentially that what that will do is that will give you access to the bike system for three days? Any bike rentals that you get that are less than 30 minutes long so as long as you pick up a bike and return it within 30 minutes. You’re not charge an additional fee if you keep it for longer than that window. There is a small additional fee on that you just pay along with that if you’re a local.
I highly recommend this card because we can usually do is you can take one of those leap cards? That you have so essentially. you would get this at any like dart station for example and then what you do is, Once you’ve on the double effects website and purchase it you can actually, link your Leap card up to your Dublin city bikes membership Which is only 25 euro per year? It’s not calendar your year from when you last purchased the card. So if you’re even visiting Dublin or here’s a student here for a few months if something, I highly recommend because it’s a really fast and Easy way to get around the city and even if you don’t want to get up to date like a beautiful day like today It’s just a nice way to get you know to get out and get about if you have any questions about Dublin bikes Slope you know.
Do you also need tips or tricks? One other thing actually have for you is make sure to download the Dublin city bikes app because it will tell you Where the stations are nearby and I’ll also tell you how many bikes? They have a feel a little brittle because occasionally you will get into the kind of trouble or situation where you will either need they’ll be a station that has no bikes available or they’re too many camera turn. So make sure to download.
