Following a collaboration between DLR Sports Partnership, Dun Laoghaire Rathdown County Council, The Bike Hub and Cycling Without Age, older adults and people with a disability can now book a range of inclusive bikes to cycle along the Coastal Mobility Route (CMR) in Dun Laoghaire.
This new inclusive fleet includes two electric trishaws which are designed to carry one or two people with a mobility issue at the front and piloted by a trained volunteer cyclist, allowing passengers to enjoy the sensation of cycling with the wind in their hair.
Older adults and people with limited mobility now have the opportunity to go on a cycle at an easy pace, taking in the sights and sounds of the coastline, whatever the weather. This new inclusive bike fleet also has a range of other bikes including a wheelchair bike, tandem bike, handcycle and specialised trikes for hire by children or adults with a disability.
These bikes can be booked through this online portal and hired for free from The Bike Hub, located at Dún Laoghaire harbour, across from the R.N.L.I. shop. The Bike Hub staff will then be on site to facilitate this as well as assist with the correct use of these bikes.
Please note all bikes must be booked in advance.
