...I'm sorry to disrupt you while you're reading this article, but without messages like this,'s reader-funded journalism won't survive. With nearly 1/2 million views and 300k readers so-far this year, it's not just people who are dedicated to cycling that this website reaches. However, the number of subscribers is around 0.6% of readers. While having a large gap between readers/subscribers is standard for non-paywall reader-supported journalism, IrishCycle's journalism needs more support. Don't delay, support monthly or yearly today.

Local media around the country were today reporting on some details:

The schemes are currently out to tender to build and run, as we reported two weeks ago:

…planned regional city bike share schemes for Cork, Galway, Limerick and Waterford being promoted by the National Transport Authority. That tendering process is at the pre-qualification stage – the companies selected are expected to provide submissions detailing their bids to run the schemes before the end of September.

Meanwhile the NUI Galway scheme which we reported on here and here, is now open to registrations at and here’s a video NUI Galway released about their system:

...That's the end of the article. Keep scrolling if you want to the comments, but *NEEDS* readers like you to keep it that way. It only requires a small percentage of readers to give a bit each month or every year to keep's journalism open to all. Thank you.
