Irish Cycle Facility of the Week

Ballina bridge ped cycle

...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 676k views so-far this year, it's not just "avid cyclists" that this website reaches. But the number of subscribers is around 0.6% of readers. This large gap between readers/subscribers is standard for non-paywall reader-supported journalism, but IrishCycle's journalism needs more support. Don't delay, support monthly or yearly today. Now, back to the article...

After spending nearly €1.5 million on this pedestrian bridge over the River Moy adapting it for cyclists was easy: just add a shared use sign and a bicycle logo on the ground. Forget about the kerb between the road and the bridge. No need for a small ramp for easy access — as we know all cyclists use mountain bikes and can easily mount the kerb.
