Bicycling the City--Cork, Ireland
On Thursday, Cork joined the ranks of other cities around the world with a public bicycle system. New bike stations have popped up near campus, along the Grand Parade, in Shandon and near other convenient city spots. The service is very affordable compared to NYC and Denver where I have used the service. For 3 euro, one can rent the bicycle for for 3 days (at 30 minute intervals) or city dwellers can sign up for a whole year of service for only 10 euro. Limerick and Galaway have also followed suit.
