This could be the most Irish cycle lane in existence

Whoever marked out this lane on Griffith Avenue in Dublin has a great regard for public litter bins.

Yes. The new fangled curved cycle lane – coming to a road near you.

This artistic interpretation of the bike lane puts heavy importance on the city’s bins – which is all well and good until you see how slim that path is on the left.

The cycling public give it two thumbs down

It’s hard to disagree.
