    ‘cyclists dismount’ is not a traffic sign which is backed up in any way by law; it’s unenforceable.

      *DRAWING IN BREATH* SURE DON’T WE KNOW, SURE AREN’T YOU ARE TALKING TO THE CONVERTED, LOL.

      Note also high-quality translation on the sign. The Irish for “dismount” is not actually “dismount.”
      (Stands back as pro-and anti-bike flaming merges with pro- and anti-Irish flaming.)

    Surely if, as a cyclist, you can see that sign, you’re on the wrong side of the road?

      Correct. So in that sense, the sign makes perfect sense with or without the JCB.

    Could they not have found someone who knew the Irish for “dismount”?

    “Tuirlingt de rothar” apparently

    Also, it doesn’t say “Dismount Here” or “Dismount Now”. Maybe it’s just reminding cyclists to dismount at some stage in the future?

    YIZ DIDN’T TINK O’DAT, DID YIZ?

    Cyclists who cycle the wrong way down one way streets and are surprised when someone steps out in front of them.

    I want to punch those cyclists.

    (And I am a cyclist, just not a stupid one).

    Perhaps instead it is an existential statement from maybe a street art project along the lines of –
    Politicians Lie
    Bears $h1t in the woods
    Elephants Remember

    I’m sure someone can come up with wittier ones than these mediocre efforts..

    Ah here, c’mom. Do ya not see the JCB in the background? Dismounting may lessen the chances of getting a slap off a half tonne weight bucket.

    Probably advisory to cyclists as the designated cycle path is over crowded by pedestrians, dog walkers, joggers, toddlers and parents pushing buggies, therefore making the cycle path unsafe for cyclists to use.
