A number of cycle lanes where the group has protested are now protected by bollards and other plastic dividers.

The I Bike Dublin tweeted: “Sick of being pushed out into heavy bus traffic in the morning on Camden Street? Join us tomorrow at 8am to protect the bike lane and keep it clear for your fellow cyclists. Pay it forward with 1 hour of standing on a white line! Meet at the corner at Brady’s pharmacy @ 7.55am.”

The illegal parking on the cycle lane has been documented over time by Ciarán Ferrie, a member of I Bike Dublin:
