This is a trend which should have escaped no one.

If you look at old photos of Dublin from the 1940s and 50s, most people seemed to cycle (and there was very little obesity back then).

It's a very welcome trend - Dublin Bikes has been a huge success and its a great way to get around the city.

So Gaireans - do YOU cycle?

Don’t you think cycling is super unsafe here? As well as inhaling all the lovely bad air, how many motorists have swerved 6cm from you ?
I’d bike on my holidays in a country that actually respects cyclists and has nice cycle lanes etc but here !

I agree. I gave up the cycling. Way too dangerous.
Still get a bit of exercise walking to work or 10 mins on bus if not in the mood.

Roads are deadly for cycling, you'd want to be as mad as Murdoch to go out on the roads.

I don't think this was the only reason for less obesity back then?

Back then most people ate more fish than red meat and a lot less bread.

People walked, now everybody drives or takes a taxi, when I was young nobody took a taxi, you'd think nothing of walking home, now you can't, it's not safe.
