National Bike Week ends today, which leaves plenty of time to get into the spirit of what is certainly the craze of the moment.

Cycling is where it’s at these days, for everyone from ferocious lycra-clad men-of-a-certain-age storming up mountains at weekends, to families on bikes with baskets and baby seats. Happily, Dublin is increasingly cycle-friendly (although it has a way to go yet. . .) and there is no better way to see the city - any city, really - than at a pace dictated by your very own momentum. Julian Vignoles, formerly a TV and radio producer with RTE and long-time cycling enthusiast, and Sean Farrell have got together and cleverly capitalised on the trend by setting up cycling tours. There is the Taste of Dublin tour, starting on Fade Street and taking in many of the city’s major architectural and cultural landmarks, over two-and-a-half-hours, along with stories, anecdotes, information about Dublin’s history and heritage. Digest the City is slightly longer, includes a break for lunch, and goes a little further, but all at the same relaxed pace.
