February 17, 2014:
Dublin City Council are very supportive of cycling but only between the hours of 07:00-10:00 and 12:00-17:00, and only Monday to Saturday. The pictured cars are parked legally — but allowing parking in a cycle lane at times does not matter because nobody wants or needs to cycle on Sundays or at night, and nobody starts work or college between 10am and 11am.
The above pictured cycle lane is on the second busiest commuter cycling route into Dublin City Centre and it links the city centre with Rathmines, an area which has over 12% cycling modal share (the highest district in Dublin). It’s also just inside Dublin City’s canals, an area which the council policy claims to prioritise cycling.
