The dock at The Dock

There’s a new next-door neighbour right outside the door of Dock Cafe – the new Titanic Quarter Coca Cola Zero Belfast Bikes Dock (to give it’s full title) – or – as I henceforth decree it should be named:

The Dock Dock

The Belfast Bikes scheme has been one of the runaway successes of this past year Рeverywhere you go in Belfast you can see someone pottering past on one of the cool retro bikes.  Certainly on the Wee IMG_3480Tram we saw loads of passengers jump off at the Bike Dock at the front of the Odyssey (right beside the tram stop) to continue their journey into Belfast on two wheels.

Apparently the Odyssey Bike Dock was by far the busiest of the entire scheme – so it’s great that the TQ guys have added another Bike Dock closer to Dock Cafe, SS Nomadic, Titanic Belfast and the Belfast Met.

Cyclists have always been a huge part of the mix of customers in Dock Cafe and Dock Market – and now there’s even less excuse for arriving at the Dock on four wheels rather than two!
