Bike Hire in Dublin
Despite Dublin not having a bike lane, which means that bicycle riders must share the roads with cars and buses, many Dubliners prefer to rent a bike as means of transport to get around the capital.
Curiously, Dublin is one of the capital cities of the world where more bicycles are stolen. For this reason, second-hand bikes and Dublinbikes are extremely popular.
Dublinbikes is a public bicycle rental scheme distributed throughout the capital, like many other rental programs around the world. The bike stations are located quite close to each other and they all have a station terminal.
If you wish to rent a Dublinbike during your stay in the Irish capital, you can purchase a 3 Day Ticket using your credit card in most station terminals. Once you have your ticket, you can hire a Dublinbike as many times and for as long as you wish.
