Live in Dublin city centre with no bicycle storage space? Dublin City Council are trialing a solution which you can sign up for.
You can read more about the idea of on-street bicycle lockers in our article from last year, or you can sign up here to let the council you’re interested in renting a space if they roll out the lockers after the trial of the first unit. They will also soon be expanding the trial and allowing more residents of the Dublin 8 area to use the free space in the current locker.
If you’re free at lunch time tomorrow, Saturday January 24, the Beta Project will be showing the public inside the lockers:

If you have not lived in the city centre where there’s few secure places to lock your bicycle, the issue may not be too apparent. But city centre residents see the point:

- Dublin to get high density bicycle parking as demand grows
- More bicycle lockers for for train stations in Dublin area
- Dutch bicycle parking: From on-street to multi-story

- A city smaller than Dublin is planning 22,000 bicycles spaces at its train station
Subscription drive update: IrishCycle.com reached its target of 270 subscribers by the end of August -- thank you to all who have helped! Our new target is to have 300 subscribers by the end of 2022 -- originally this was hoped to be exceeded by the first year of running the site full time (end of October).
If you can help push IrishCycle.com above 300 subscribers, please subscribe today for €5 or more. If you have already done so -- thank you!
Please remember, every month there's a natural drop-off in subscriptions due to people getting new cards, cards stolen, Revolut not topped up etc.
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
