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.
