...I'm sorry to disrupt you while you're reading this article, but without messages like this, IrishCycle.com'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...

Witnesses and a media report confirm that the bicycle was crushed by a recycling truck.

The junction forms one of the main cycle routes between the core city centre and Stoneybatter and Grangegorman, but is known as a dangerous spot by local cyclists. The main traffic flow on the one-way North King Street turns left onto Queen Street, while the main cycling flow goes right onto George’s Lane.
