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 support it.

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 the start of December 2022, 290 readers have kindly become monthly subscribers The target of 300 subscribers by the end of 2022 is within reach. If you can help push IrishCycle.com above 300 subscribers, please subscribe today. If you have already done so — thank you!

But currently, it’s only around 1.7% of readers who subscribe. So, if you can, please join them and subscribe today via ko-fi.com/irishcycle/tiers
