Phoenix Park Bike Rides

Phoenix Park is one of the largest walled city parks in Europe and for two years or so, we were lucky enough to live a stone's throw away from it.  It was a place for walks, runs, picnics, photographs and long cycles.  Our affectionately adopted backyard.

Nearly 30% of it is covered in trees and reading this bio , learning that a herd of Fallow deer have lived in the park since the 1660's is just a reminder that no matter how familiar, there is always more to learn.  And if you've ever happened across these guys hidden under shade or out grazing- it somehow always holds you captive for a while.DSC_0099
It's been a long while since I've been back cycling here and renting a bike to explore it all over again was just the thing this afternoon called for.

It is mighty out there today friends! DSC_0100
A little snippet video of my usual giddiness here on Instagram.   (Rental bikes are from 5 euro at the main gate.)
