...I'm sorry to disrupt you while you're reading this article, but without messages like this, IrishCycle.com's reader-funded journalism won't survive. With 676k views so-far this year, it's not just "avid cyclists" that this website reaches. But the number of subscribers is around 0.6% of readers. This large gap between readers/subscribers is standard for non-paywall reader-supported journalism, but IrishCycle's journalism needs more support. Don't delay, support monthly or yearly today. Now, back to the article...

Hugh Cooney, Bleeper CEO and founder, said: “Increased awareness of climate change and the impact of the pandemic are two of the major factors behind Bleeper’s growth. Bleeper offers a range of climate-friendly transport solutions which are ideally suited to getting around Dublin.”

He added: “We’ve also seen more people rediscovering cycling during the pandemic – something which has been reinforced by the provision of new cycling infrastructure across Dublin.”

The Bleeper service is one of three on-street bicycle share systems in Dublin — the others are the station-based system DublinBikes and the stationless electric Moby. Both Bleeper and Moby also offer monthly rentals.

Bleeper launched with 50 bicycles in 2017 covering just Dublin City Centre, and now has more than 800 bicycles across an area of 100km2 across the Dublin City, Fingal and Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown council areas.

The company said: “To celebrate this significant milestone Bleeper is giving all its users, new and old, a voucher for a free day pass which can be redeemed any time up until Sunday 29th August. To redeem the voucher, simply open the Bleeper app menu, select ‘Redeem Coupon Code’ and use the code BLEEPER100 to claim your free day pass.”
