The Family Riders
A bicycle is not a minivan or an SUV alright, but it doesn't mean one has to leave the family behind and cycle alone.
There are multiple options to take the young relatives for a tour on the bike if you wish to. For instance, one can attach the little one's bike and drag the offspring around town or install an extra seat in front of the saddle.
I took the picture above (and another one below) on 20 June 2012 in Grand Canal Dock, shortly before the Lunchtime Bike Ride, the highlight of Dublin's Bike Week.
It was wonderful to see so many family riders. It shows that there's a future for cycling in Dublin.
