Don’t forget the fun in cycling

Two wheels good

A chara, – While acknowledging that bike theft is a big problem (Letters, March 6th), I would urge your readers not to let it put them off cycling, for transport or for leisure. Getting back on my bike a few years ago is one of the best things I have ever done. My bike has given me more time and flexibility in my day, as it is faster than walking or public transport. It has improved my health and helped me feel more connected to my community, as I use it to access local businesses, meet friends, and travel to community events. I have a predictable journey time to work every morning, and Dublin seems smaller now that I can navigate it independently on two wheels. I regularly lock my bike all over the city and luckily, so far, it has always been there when I’ve come back. – Is mise,
