Top 10 reasons for riding a bike

Here are my top 10 reasons for riding a bike in Dublin.  What are yours?

  1. Beat the traffic jams – whiz past those huge queues of cars
  2. Arrive on time every time – your journey time is the same regardless of weather or school terms
  3. Get fit and healthy – build exercise into your daily routine
  4. Tone those muscles – keep those legs and ass looking great
  5. Arrive at work feeling amazing – you will feel energised for the whole day
  6. Enjoy those snacks guilt-free – you’ve earned them
  7. Get to know your city – you’ll see a lot more at a slower pace
  8. Love your planet – and embrace your inner smugness
  9. Save lots of money – enough to buy yourself another bike
  10. Put a smile on your face – let the endorphins flow
