Big changes are coming to VTT (stay tuned) and so to take a break from the madness we switched off the engine and swapped our vintage wheels for some electric ones! We donned helmets and high vis vests and along with Hugh from Lazy Bike Tours we cycled out of Temple Bar and started our two-hour journey through Dublin on electric bikes.
We hit Dublin Castle, St. Patrick’s Cathedral, Teeling’s Distillery (where we met Mr. John Teeling himself), we went into the heart of the Liberties, saw the infamous Guinness gate, IMMA and Kilmainham Gaol before heading back to Temple Bar
It was a great way to see Dublin and we were lucky that, albeit a bit nippy the weather was dry and the sun was out (intermittently). The bikes were electric which made the experience all that more enjoyable. We weren’t worried about being so unfit that we couldn’t keep up or that we would be so tired and out of breath that we wouldn’t enjoy it. Instead the extra help allowed us to sit back and truly take in the city
We were treated to great stories and tales about Dublin, it’s streets and of course its inhabitants. Hugh, our guide, is a terrific story teller and kept us captivated the whole time. We would highly recommend this tour if you’re looking to see a lot of Dublin and hear stories you might not get anywhere else.
