A few links for your attention. The first is a very good piece in the Sentinel about a few of the things the Galway Cycling Campaign is lobbying for. Here’s an excerpt:
Roundabouts have become particularly hazardous for Galway cyclists. “To negotiate a roundabout, a cyclist has to be in the same traffic flow for entering or exiting, yet motorists are trying to overtake them by racing past. They are only delayed by a few seconds if they allow the cyclist to go in front. We’d appeal to motorists to give cyclists the space to get on and off the roundabout safely,” Mr Foran said. [That’s Shane Foran, of the Galway Cycling Campaign and Cyclist.ie.]
Item no.2: Galway City and County Councils are planning a cycling and walking strategy, and have provided an online survey requesting feedback.
Finally, for your amusement, here’s a Flickr pool of bad cycle lanes.
