Happy National Bike Month! With an abundance of bike paths and an extremely bikeable Downtown, Dublin is the perfect place to trade your four wheels for two.
Here’s how you can celebrate Bike Month in Dublin.
Discover Bike Paths
If you’re looking for a new way to experience everything Dublin has to offer from public art and wildlife to local shopping and dining, then biking is the way to do it. Dublin features over 130-miles of recreational bike paths for every kind of rider. Enjoy the forestry of Kiwanis Riverway Park or head to the city and bike across the Dublin Link.
With so many bike paths, it can be overwhelming to decide which ones to take. Don’t worry, resident bike enthusiast, Brad Hanf has put together a guide to the top three places you should bike in Dublin.
Pro tip: For a full map of the bike paths in Dublin, you can pick up a portable bike map in the Visitors Center, 9. S. High St.
Attend the Bike Rodeo
Learn everything you need to know about biking safely at the City of Dublin’s Bike Rodeo. Stop by the different stations to learn about different bike safety practices.
