I have tried to cycle my bike in Dublin, but alas, I am not always that fearless. And now I pine for a proper push bike instead of the spine-arching agoniser I've had for years. I mean, yes, it has been good and is fine for long cycles up the mountains - but how often do I do that? Not so much. No, I want a bike ala The Netherlands-type. It was so easy to cycle there - free of the conspiracy of potholes, taxi drivers and emerging motorists. Easy and fun. I have attempted it here, but the nearest I get is cycling home from Marino College.
