First look at regional Coke Zero bicycles

Below are some of the first images of the Irish regional bike share bicycles, sponsored by Coca-Cola and due on the streets of Cork, Limerick and Galway later this year.

The National Transport Authority and Department of Transport have said: “Uniquely amongst bike schemes world-wide, these bikes have built-in gear-shifting technology, enabling automatic gear-changes which will contribute towards easier and safer cycling for users.”

Junior transport minister, Alan Kelly tweeted the following:

“Thrilled that the new bikes for Coke Zero Bikes Scheme arrived today in Cork.I know it will be a huge success @labour pic.twitter.com/F0Bv0s5oBP”

And the NTA posted this image to their website of one of the bikes held by Hugh Creegan, Director of Transport Investment at National Transport Authority:

I am editor of IrishCycle.com and have reported on and commented on cycling in Ireland for over a decade. My background is in journalism -- I have a BA in Journalism from DCU and HDip in Print Journalism from BCFE. I wrote about cycling for national newspapers, and then started CyclingInDublin.com for overflow stories. Later the website was re-branded to reflect a more national focus.
