The first driverless shuttle in Ireland will make its debut in Dublin’s Docklands on September 21st and 22nd. The special event organised by Dublin City Council as part of its ‘Smart Docklands’ project and in partnership with the Civic Group will bring a glimpse of the future of smart and sustainable transport to Dublin.

The Easymile EZ10 shuttle is a driverless electric vehicle that can carry up to 15 passengers. It has an in-built access ramp for mobility-challenged passengers and doesn’t need any additional road infrastructure in order to operate. The EZ10 is currently in daily operation at locations in the US, Holland, China and Estonia and is expanding globally.

Prevent sunburn, stay hydrated and avoid the UV radiation – tips for riding in hot hot weather……….

We are having a great summer and one of the biggest obstacles with cycling in hot weather is maintaining adequate hydration.
Drink little and often when riding, and make sure that you have plenty of drink with you or know of places on your route where you can obtain more drinks.
While some cyclists are proud of their cycling tan as a badge of honour, others find it embarrassing to look as though you are still wearing a white T-shirt when you take your top off. But tan lines are not the main concern – damaging sunburn and the risk of skin cancer due to excessive ultraviolet light exposure are a problem. Wear sunscreen on the exposed parts of your body: arms, legs, face and in particular the back of your neck.
A very obvious way to avoid the severity of the sun’s rays is to avoid the hottest periods of the day for your cycling trip. Ride in the morning or evening. Pay particular attention to fluid intake when you get home, but also don’t forget to eat as you would normally after a ride.
A cold bath or shower will help you cool off. You may also feel you deserve an ice cream or two……………..
