UCD Bike Day a Big Success for Bleeper

On the 21stof April, Bleeper attended University College Dublin (UCD) Bike Day, an annual event held by UCD Estate Services to promote all aspects of cycling from safe cycling practices to the health, economic and environmental benefits of cycling.

Bleeper provides a private fleet of shared bikes to international students, the UCD Global ‘My Private Scheme’. Furthermore, the Bleeper public scheme operates on the UCD Belfield campus.

Bike sharing public bikes at college campus event

With over 4,000 public bike racks on site, UCD is an ideal location for bike-sharing. Bleeper continues to experience increased utilisation of our bikes on campus with most trips that finish on the campus having started inside our Dublin City Council Operating Zone.

The Bleeper crew brought out our public bikes, eBikes and eCargobikes to the event. Bike Day attendees were able to try out our eBikes and eCargobikes to learn more about the various modes of active travel Bleeper provides.

The highlight of the day for Bleeper was the ‘Slow Bike Race’ where students competed to cycle as the slow as possible across the Basketball court. Some cyclists were able to travel 27 metres in over 40 seconds. Winners of the Slow Bike Race were awarded Bleeper credit for their accomplishment.

In addition to our public bikes, Bleeper showcased the UCD Global Private Scheme bikes. For the second year in a row, Bleeper is providing a private fleet of 30+ shared Bleeper bikes to over 500 international students studying at UCD. Completely free to use, ‘My Private Scheme’ allows students to explore the very best Dublin has to offer, not to mention all the great towns and villages on both the north and south side of the city.
