Old Bike

Bikes are still used as a means of transport, somehow. I think people are probably a little crazy to cycle into town these days because of the huge increase in traffic but some hearty souls will continue to do so!

I cross-processed this to add the brown/purle tint.

Jeez, Donncha, I think you need to get out of Cork more if you think it is a city unsuitable for cyclists. I am from cork and I would happily cycle there now, just as I did when I was growing up there. (I used to cycle to school on Patrick’s hill occassionally (occassionally because I was lazy), and I’ll bet some of my teachers still do) It is a blissful city (when you have cycled in Dublin and I have lived here for seven years) for cyclists (hills excluded, but traffic wise). Absolutely, there could be more bike lanes, but when traffic moves at a sedate 20mph on average (i know, i know it should be in kph) who needs them!

You’re right Laura, compared to Dublin, cycling in Cork is safe but that doesn’t detract from the dangers of a hugely increased population in recent years and sometimes reckless cyclists on the road.

I wouldn’t say it’s unsuitable, but all the road works in the city have provided an extra hazard too, meaning cyclists need to be a little more wary.

Hello , I have an old BAUER bike i think was made in 1920; I need to know about this brand . but it’s very hard to find any information
