Hello Reader... IrishCycle.com 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 IrishCycle.com, it just needs enough people like you to believe!

Monthly subscriptions will give IrishCycle.com's journalism a dependable base of support. But please don't take free access for granted. Last year IrishCycle.com 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 ko-fi.com/irishcycle/tiers

  1. I realise these are just “Indicative designs” but there’s not really much to get excited about around Amiens street and Memorial Road; no space allocated to cyclists.

    Also what happens to a cyclist coming off the two way cycle track at the end of Westmoreland Street towards college green? Is there going to be provision for cycling on the Luas Tracks?

    And is there really any change for cyclists at Beresford Place?
    Bus Lanes aren’t really a nice option considering you have to share them with aggressive Bus and Taxi drivers.

    • I’d share your concerns and go further to say the outlined layout around Custom House and on Dame Street / College Green is worse for cyclists than what’s in place right now.

      The above and the first story covering the contents of the report is just about a making the report public — news coverage without any comment or analyzes. I would have liked to have comment from different groups, coverage of more of the detail of the study and some of my own comment on the drawings a but my own lack of time did not allow for this all in one.
