NEWS IN BRIEF: A total of 736 on-street bicycle parking stands — which amounts to 1,472 bicycles parkings spaces — were installed at 150 locations across the Dublin City Council area in 2020.
The council’s latest Covid Mobility Report, for January 18, also said outlined that it is continuing to install bicycle parkings spaces for larger bicycles, including cargo bicycles and bicycles for people with mobility issues. One the latest location for the new stands is Bull Wall.
Nice to see more bicycle parking provided by @DubCityCouncil in Stoneybatter. It includes a lower cargo bicycle rack. Great to see, although they should be opting for a different colour under the cargo bike space (blue is used for disabled parking). pic.twitter.com/4MPJVICE6H

Hello Reader... 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 February, 210 readers have kindly become monthly subscribers -- thank you very much to all that have!
But currently, it's only around 1.3% of readers who subscribe. So, if you can, please join them and subscribe today via ko-fi.com/irishcycle/tiers
