  1. Beautiful visualisation! Well done.
    Out of curiosity, do you know what’s the reason that, by and large, the percentage of commuters who cycle is much higher in south side areas (with the exception of Clontarf that ranked high and Ballyfermot that ranked low)?
    It seems that cycling is for the wealthier citizens of Dublin, while people in the poorer areas use other means of transport.

  2. I would say they are very conservative numbers taken on weekdays during rush hour and the real figure is much more. There is no Tally of evening or weekend use and a lot of people are out of work and anyway they have not counted all the people who Bicycle.

    I see loads of people Cycling everyday and Night,if you stop at the Traffic Lights anywhere in the City you are immediately joined by at least 8 Cyclists waiting for the off. I never had that 5 years ago ,I would be the only one on a Bike stopped at the Lights,all good the more the merrier. Strength in Numbers more clout in getting better infrastructure in the future.

  3. Imagine what the bike mode share would be if the gender split was even. The reason for the current split is presumably a lack of subjectively safe cycling infrastructure. To rest on your laurels at this point is effectively gender discrimination.

    BTW my city/country has much, much worse numbers than Dublin’s so I mean this to be constructive criticism. Dublin is probably the English-speaking* world’s Number One cycling city so am I am very impressed with what you’ve done – you’re an inspiration (so far) to the Anglosphere.

    * I’m aware Irish Gaelic is your national language, no disrespect intended.
