A man is riding his bike along the Dublin streets with a sign on his helmet telling passers-by to beware of the danger of riding bicycles near Dublin’s busiest shopping area.
The sign is part of a campaign by the city to reduce the number of cyclists who use the streets by making them safer and more pedestrian-friendly.
A group of cyclists is riding along the west side of Dublin’s River Rathdown at around 10:30am on Sunday, March 14.
They’re not stopping at a busy road in the centre of the city but instead taking a slightly longer route.
They’ve been using the south-west side of the River Rathdowns and are stopping for the last time on the west of the road, at the junction of the Rathdown with the Clarendon.
There are a few signs posted at the side of their bikes stating the cyclists should be careful as they’re passing through the area where the death of Michael McNamara last month occurred.
The group are riding along Clarendons edge where the number one spot in terms of pedestrian fatalities on the city’s streets has been in the last six months.
In recent weeks, the city has been working with the council and local government to try and reduce the danger.
The signs are not a deterrent to people on bikes.
They are also a reminder of the dangers that face pedestrians.
The campaign by Cycling Ireland is encouraging people to cycle safely on the River, and is aimed at changing the culture of cycling.
The number of cycling fatalities on Dublin’s streets dropped from 20 to 16 between January and August this year.
Cycling Ireland said it had seen a decline in the number and types of cyclists involved in accidents, particularly cyclists on foot.
It said that there had been a drop in deaths on the roads of all ages and all ethnicities since January.
However, the campaign is also about reducing the number who choose to cycle on the streets.
It’s not just about safety, it’s about encouraging people, particularly young people, to do so and getting them to cycle less.
The Dublin Cycling Campaign has been encouraging people with disabilities to cycle to reduce their chances of being hit by a car or pedestrian.
It said: “I think we can all agree that cyclists and walking need to be better treated, and we’ve been talking about this for some time.”
It also said that it is encouraging cyclists to ride with caution, and to do their homework before they cycle in their neighbourhood.
In a statement, a spokesperson for Cycling Ireland said: ”It’s important that we educate people to understand that cycling on the river is a safe activity, and that it’s safe to cycle in the vicinity of shops, schools and places of worship.
We want to encourage people to use the River as a safe route for walking and cycling.”
It added that it was important to remember that it can be difficult to tell the difference between cyclists who are using the streets, and those who are not.
