Cycling Around Cork
There’s no healthier, more Eco-friendly or more pleasant way to see the sights of Cork – though some of the northside’s hills are not for the faint-hearted!
There are already a number of cycle lanes in the city and suburbs – popular with students and tourists alike – and the transport authorities are busy establishing an integrated system of lanes and a wide range of measures that will make cycling in the city both safe and attractive.
If you’re planning a trip outside the city, bikes can be brought on the trains – though you will need a ticket for them – and Bus Éireann will take them in the luggage compartment as long as there’s enough space. If you haven’t brought your own bicycle with you, you’ll have no problem hiring one for a few hours, a few days, or for a longer visit.
