Irish Cycle Facility of the Week

June 9, 2014:


...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...

At this junction, too many people on bicycles were choosing to rejoin the road rather than be pedestrianise and be directed to the pedestrian-only crossing. But this caused problems so this high-standard Irish junction received an Irish solution — railing were extended were extended to block people from re-joining the road.

An optional extra option is to wait at the yield markings where the black-top cycle path ends — the railing might just move out of your way, you never know.
