Joe Devlin, Bus Éireann driver from Shantalla, Galway

“I got my first bike like every kid at the time, handed down through the family, when I was about 12 years old. And I have been cycling for the last 42 years.

My bike gets me out in the fresh air, keeps me fit, and best of all, keeps me out of the traffic jams in Galway.

People find it astonishing that as a professional driver for 34 years I have never had a car.

A bike is like a woman. Mind it, protect it and love it and it will stay with you forever.”
