Four wheels vs two: Would you be willing to swap your car for a bike?


Every day, over one hundred and fifty thousand bicycles share Ireland’s roads with two million cars, buses and trucks. 

And as part of a new series, Now You See Me, RTÉ TV will be looking at the relationship on our roads between bikes and cars, which, at times, can be pretty fraught.

They will ask the question: "If we can see them and they can see us, why are we finding it so hard to share our roads?"

As part of show, producers want to get Irish drivers out of their cars and onto bikes to experience the roads on two wheels. 

They are now on the hunt for “dedicated” drivers willing to swap their cars for a bicycle commuter experiment.

If you are interested in getting out from behind the wheel, getting some exercise and seeing what your commute is like on two wheels, then email your name, age and location in Ireland to

Include a line or two on your daily commute, what type of driver you are and your opinion of sharing the roads with bikes as well.
