Today a man from Kildare County Council came to talk to us about cycling. In his presentation he showed us the importance of cycling and how it can also improve the environment. He also showed us some stats of the number of people that cycle in Ireland by comparison to the number of people who cycle in Sweden. Lets just say there is a huge difference in the numbers! He then went on to talk about the advantages of cycling to school. Throughout his presentation he showed us a number of videos to do with cycling. This video was one of my favorite's, it was made by Mercedes-Benz. It proves that cycling can sometimes be faster than using a car however, it also shows us the advantages and disadvantages of using a car or bike.
