Hello Reader... is a reader-funded journalism publication. Effectively it's an online newspaper covering news and analyses of cycling and related issues, including cycle route designs, legal changes, and pollical and cultural issues.

There are examples, big and small, which show that the reader-funded or listener-funding model can work to support journalism -- from the Dublin Inquirer and The Guardian to many podcasts. To make it work for, it just needs enough people like you to believe!

Monthly subscriptions will give's journalism a dependable base of support. But please don't take free access for granted. Last year had an average of 15,800 readers per month and we know our readers include people who cycle and those who don't, politicians, officials and campaigners.

I know only a small percentage of readers will see the value of keeping this open enough to subscribe, that's the reality of the reader-funded model. But more support is needed to keep this show on the road.

The funding drive was started in November 2021 and, as of the start of June 2022, 250 readers have kindly become monthly subscribers -- thank you very much to all that have!

But currently, it's only around 1.6% of readers who subscribe. So, if you can, please join them and subscribe today via

  1. Supprised at the lack of stations along the P2P route west of the docklands. Also the two stations on grand canal st. and mount st. are off the canal route.

  2. Because that area is part of a later phase of the overall plan, if it comes to fruition in it’s entirity.

  3. Very disappointed that there is nothing in the entire north-east of the city. Especially along the S2S (Sutton to Sandycove) route. I was hoping that this expansion would breach the canals.
