Great Bike. Hey, do you own a Dahon folder? If so, I may have once come across a YouTube vid you made.
I would love to cycle to a port and buy some fresh fish. What a great errand!

I have a Dahon Foldy but it needs to be Fixed,it seems to have stiffened up. I have also the Brompton folder which is a far superior Bike except it is hard to change the Wheel on it if you get a Puncture because of the Small Wheels.
I have three Videos on U Tube Cycling around the Clontarf District and Howth but none about the Dahon or Brompton http//www.sunnyjoe66 is the Name i use.
If you ever get to Dublin then visit this Port,it is very Picturesque with the Hill of Howth, Deerpark Golf Club,Howth Castle,Transport Museum,Irelands Eye it is an Island one Mile off the Coast that you can get a Ferry out to in the Summer between June and August. THere is the Yacht Club and you can get Lessons on how to Sail in Small Dinghy Sailing Boats and Kayaks. If you Click on the Picture it will take you to my Flicker Pictures ,I use the Pseudonym Norbert Malone.
Thanks Jolly Crank for the Comments.

I went straight away over to YouTube and watched those vids. I enjoyed them! I like everyday travel videos of people biking, especially if they're either in a different part of the country from me or in a different country altogether.
That area around Howth does look beautiful (and so did your dinner, my friend).

If you look through the Pages of this Blog near the Start in I think it was October you will find more stuff about Howth and Dublin City. Just casually go through it and enjoy the Pictures and it will give you an Idea of what ithe City is Like.

We have also a Magnificent City Park of 1,760 Acres out by Huston Station in Kingsbridge with Fallow Deer ,the Zoo, Horse Riding, The American Embassy Residence, The President of Irelands Residence. It is a great Place to go Riding a Bike, I must post a few Pictures of it now that the Weather is beginning to get Mild here.
Thanks Jolly Crank.

Thanks Urbanyclist,The actual City is not very big Bordered by the two Canals The Royal on the North Side and the Grand on the South. It is I suppose a Miniature version of London in style,but the Greater Dublin Area is now Spreading out to Swords on the North side and Cabinteely on the South. A lot of nice Parks and Seasides on both the North and South side.
