...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 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 person is shown in footage travelling a few metres on the bonnet of the car before the motorist stopped and the person fell onto the ground.

The motorist then reversed and drove off. Gardai said that they understand that the driver of the car had a shaved head and that there were two young children in the car at the time.

The person knocked off the bike was treated with facial injuries that required surgery.
