Mayo County Council included the below feature on their “world class” Great Western Greenway. As you can see, the feature adds an obstacle course feel to the mostly off-road cycle route — this allows the greenway to be marketed to an even a wider range of cyclists. The low visibility obstacle is especially useful in keeping cyclists pulling trailers on their toes and, in poor lighting conditions, it acts as a useful surprise crash barrier for the extra adventurous.

  1. You have got to agree that most County councils are at least consistent in their lack of consideration for all cyclists. No discrimination there!
