Freewheeling arose as a way for cyclists to look as fabulous as they feel while cycling. Here at Freewheeling we love the feeling of coasting around the streets of Dublin.We wanted an alternative to the concept that cycling is a daily race with traffic.
We like baskets, panniers for our stuff, bells and lights that stand out from the norm, bits and bobs that make your bicycle an extension of you. And so Freewheeling was born. We have sourced a bespoke range of cycling accessories from all over the world to make your bicycle that little bit more special. Here at Freewheeling, we use our bikes not for racing but as a method of getting from A to B, wherever that may be.
We like to enjoy our time on a bicycle, chatting to people while waiting for lights, the stress of not having to worry about parking, nipping down the road for a shopping/a pint with friends……
We love bicycles in all shapes and sizes and want to spread the word about cycling culture and social cycling. We want cycling more mainstream and reclaim the streets of Dublin for cyclists. Cycling should be about arriving on time without rumpled clothes and helmet hair. For us it’s about just taking your time and seeing where you end up.
Just roll with it.
