Ghost bicycle to be reinstated at Harold’s Cross

A ghost bicycle erected beside the Robert Emmet Bridge at Harold’s Cross in Dublin, which was removed two years ago, is to be reinstated tomorrow (Saturday) morning.

...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 nearly 1/2 million views and 300k readers so-far this year, it's not just people who are dedicated to cycling that this website reaches. However, the number of subscribers is around 0.6% of readers. While having a large gap between readers/subscribers is standard for non-paywall reader-supported journalism, IrishCycle's journalism needs more support. Don't delay, support monthly or yearly today. Now, back to the article...

The bicycle was tagged for removal with a warning notice and, when the tag was not removed with in the timeframe on the notice, the bicycle was removed by the council.

On Friday morning, I Bike Dublin tweeted: “Tomorrow at 11am we will participate in the re-installation of a ghost bike in remembrance of Zu Zhang Wong who was killed while cycling at Harold’s Cross Bridge on 14 Jan 2009. Join us if you can…. We are not organising this, just attending.”

...That's the end of the article. Keep scrolling if you want to the comments, but *NEEDS* readers like you to keep it that way. It only requires a small percentage of readers to give a bit each month or every year to keep's journalism open to all. Thank you.
