...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...

In our reader’s appeal last year, readers like you funded a much needed new laptop. At the moment, we are mainly looking to cover the on-going costs.

Thank you to those who have helped before now and thanks to anybody supporting this website now.

Please note: The last time we heard from a reader, the “make this a monthly” option does not work despite trying to work with PayPal to fix it. If you want to use this this option and it works or doesn’t work for you please let us know!

...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.


  1. Cian, I applaud the work you have done in making this site a useful forum for news and opinion about cycling and cycling infrastructure in Ireland. I intend to make a contribution to help you stay afloat. However, I do have a question: would you consider opening up the site to others to provide news or opinion articles such as updates on particular projects or coherent opinion pieces or technical sections by subject matter experts? Aside from Nadia and the very occasional other guest contributor, the vast majority of the work seems to be done by you when you have the time. And while that is appreciated, I think there is a case for allowing others to submit articles that, subject to editorial approval, could allow the site to become more community-driven and dynamic.
