      Well, it’s not rocket science: at the moment, hundred of acres of valuable street space in Dublin city centre is dedicated to providing hugely-subsidised on-street parking to motorists.

      If you were to turn over just a tiny, tiny fraction of this vast amount of space to bike parking, there would be space to park loads more bicycles. More people might be encouraged to cycle into town, making the city a more pleasant space for everyone.

      just look at what the celebration 100 years Daily website cost and the embarrassingly little traffic to it,
      money pissed up against the wall to stroke tiny egos

    Build it and they will come. Make the city centre attractive for cyclists and people (and families) will leave their car behind and take the bike instead. Even the optics of plentiful in-use bike parking encourages more people to take it up.

    Can probably overbook capacity about 110% to take account for the ones that get injured (or worse) on the way in due to the lack of safe infrastructure.
