Bikes Allowed on Local Trains!

Yes it's true folks.

After only about 15 years of lobbying, Ireland's national railway Iarnrod Eireann, has finally decided to allow bikes to be carried on local trains.
So from now in Cork the local Cobh and Midelton trains should allow bikes in off peak times.
(10.00 - 15.30 and after 19.00) Keep an eye out for changes.
Of course some trains are practically empty at peak time especially if they are heading out of the city so maybe the rules will be adjusted.
I for one am looking forward to heading off on the weekends on the train with my bike!

That is fantastic. When I lived in London I could pop bike onboard with me on trains to the countryside just outside London just to cycle.

Irish Rail is doing the right thing - it will mean more passengers i.e. us cyclists!
