Photos from various bike rides around Dublin

I try to go for long rides every weekend. Most of the time, I explore Wicklow National Park, which is just south of Dublin. I bring my camera along and occasionally I’ll stop and take a photo or two. Note that these shots are heavily biased toward the (rare) nice weather when it’s not so miserable that I’m unwilling to stop. Nonetheless, it is clearly raining in some of these photos haha. Also, I often see something beautiful and just don’t feel like stopping.

The weather is often brutal in those mountains, because they are completely exposed, but the views are very rewarding.

  1. Good reminders. I’ve quite often been to Dublin but never got up into the mountains until this year. They don’t look so high in the distance from the city, but they are pretty impressive close too. As is being able to cycle to them, up them, across them and down again… We hired a car for the day!
