It's enforced but very very rarely - a bit like the rules of the road for cyclists

Same as the rule banning the use of mobile phones by people driving cars.

I would encourage any bmx cyclists to treat motorised obstacles in the cycle lane as a sort of bmx parkour. Can't be helped if the bike tyres are covered in grit

True. I'm astounded by the number of people who drive really expensive cars with all mod cons but won't go the extra hundred quid to have a hands free kit. Even seen some clowns on bikes with their phones out too

Even the most basic new car these days has Bluetooth as standard. It's just laziness.

Plans to upgrade parts of the Blackrock walkway with lighting and more on/off-ramps.

Definitely welcomed

We need to have good orbital cycling routes, but the more people we can have working in the centre and docklands the easier it would be to get people on bikes, as well use buses trains.

I live in London and don't have a car after having one for 10 years. It's fucking fantastic. No tax, nct, insurance or the random shit you have to spend keeping them on the road. Obviously a totally different city, but even when back now I'll happily walk distances into town I wouldn't have considered before, and cycling would be doddle. If i moved back to cork with the wife I wouldn't dream of having two cars between us like most couples appear to do.
Stay in London.

Everyone wins.
