Astrid Fitzpatrick of the Dutch Bike Shop with the Dublin Lord Mayor’s new bike
Tomorrow, Dublin Cycling Campaign will present a new bicycle to Dublin’s Lord Mayor, Nial Ring,
Mike McKillen, of the Dublin Cycling Campaign, writes:
This will provide this Lord Mayor and future Lord Mayors a transport option to get around the city in a convenient, healthy and eco- friendly way.
The ‘Official’ Bicycle was crowdfunded by supporters of Dublin Cycling Campaign.
The bicycle is a Dutch-style city bicycle, which was provided at cost price by the Dutch Bike Shop in Goatstown [Dublin 14].
The bicycle, a Gazelle CityGo C3, is a robust city bike.
The front and rear light are integrated in the frame and are operated by dynamo, so batteries are a thing of the past.
There is both a ring lock and a chain lock included, the chain lock is stored away in a unique case that is built into the frame.
The pannier bag, also known as a saddle bag, sits on the rear carrier of the bike so that the bicycle carries the weight, rather than the rider….
Astrid Fitzpatrick of the Dutch Bike Shop says,
“We’re delighted to support this initiative and we really hope the Lord Mayor enjoys his new bike. We’ve provided a really superb Dutch bike for him, ideal for getting around Dublin’s streets as comfortably as possible.”
