    Just now read this, how is it that you came to lead a group of American students in Ireland,on bikes? I understand your a teacher but we have a tough time getting approval for trips to the nearby museums. Were there any pre-trip bicycle training sessions for the kids to learn the “rules of the road” and what was the purpose of the trip? It does look like a wonderful experience. Envious =)

    I work at a private school, John, which gives me more freedom in terms of trips. We didn’t do too many sessions on road safety (after all, they wouldn’t apply in the same way in Ireland, where everyone drives on the other side), but we did a whole series of group rides to help the kids prepare. It was wonderful, but I wouldn’t do a fully bike tour like that again. It’s nice to get off the bike sometimes!
