Pop-Up Parking for Dublin Marathon

On the October Bank Holiday Bleeper set up a temporary cycle parking facility to accommodate participants and supporters of the Dublin City Marathon.

Our staff created a pop-up parking facility on Leinster Street South, close to the Start/Finish Area of the marathon on Merrion Square.

Bleeper users were able to finish their trips at the pop-up facility, rather than searching for a public cycle rack to lock their Bleeper bike to.

The facility opened at 7am and operated until just after 11am, with a brisk turnover of Bleeper bikes despite the inclement weather on the day.

Bleeper would like to thank Dublin City Council for coordinating the pop-up cycle parking and we look forward to working with other event organisers to incorporate cycling into their event management plans.
