Getting To Trinity By Bike

Trinity regards cycling as an important tool in achieving its strategic aim of demonstrating institutional leadership by being a sustainable campus. 

Cycling is environmentally friendly, quick, cost-effective, healthy and flexible.  Trinity would like to see improved cycling infrastructure in Dublin City between its main campuses and the residences it provides for students and staff.  Both Trinity and Dublin would benefit.

Dublin Bikes

Dublin Bikes are great. They're so easy to use. Here's a video made by Healthy Trinity: Smarter Travel, DU Film Soc & TCD SU and that shows just how easy.


Planning Your Route

The National Transport Authority have a cycle planner that allows you to plan your cycle trips in Dublin. You can choose the beginner/advanced route and you can also opt to avoid hills! The Cycle Planner will tell you how many squares of chocolate you’ve burned by taking this trip.

Safe Cycling

The Fashion Society would most definitely not approve of the outfits in these videos but to high viz/helmet or not is a whole other debate. Some great information on how to keep yourself safe on the road. Might surprise you.

Some good information on cyclings and drivers sharing the road here.



In 2011, Trinity installed approximately 40 additional Sheffield Hoops under the viaduct at the Sports Centre. We are working with Dublin City Council and the National Transport Authority on an on-going basis to obtain more.

Bike to Work Scheme

Human resources open the Bike to Work scheme for applications in January with vouchers issued in March. To find out more click here.

Cycling and Heavy Goods Vehicles

Big trucks and little bikes don’t always mix.  Check out this video by the Road Safety Authority about how to keep yourself safe on your bike. 

This leaflet by Dun Laoghaire Rathdown County Council also has some useful information in it.
