The first few days caused a lot of traffic backup for those waiting on the filter, but they obviously adjusted them to leave the filter on longer to reduce queueing times.

They also seem to have made adjustments to the length of green time going west to east onto collins avenue,which has made a big difference in time spent queueing to cross ballymun road.

Its a nightmare of a junction whichever way you take it, for cars breaking red lights. Often see 3/4/5 cars break the light only to sit in traffic or block the junction.

they had originally been planning to run the metro at road level through that junction. the current plan is for it to be tunnelled there. 'current' used advisedly. as is the word 'plan'.

baldwin street is straight, at least.
Baldwin street just doesn't look that bad to me, the Dying Cow looks worse.

Tempted to go for the Harlech one the next time I am in Wales, just to see. I remember a few 30% climbs the last time I was in Scotland and they slow you down, I am certain there are one or two more than 35% as one you cold not even sit on the bike as you simply flip backwards, walking was difficult.

Surprisingly only one call from a delivery driver! But lots of VRU's and tweets from cyclists/pedestrians and Ciaran Ferrie

There needs to be a serious discussion had about red lights in this country for all road users, but especially cars etc. it's far to common to see what was in that video at junctions up and down the country every day.

Cameras are the only way to go imo. The only way to change peoples behaviour is if they think there is a risk of being caught.

I'm doing a poster for a charity cycle and want to include a nice visual with details of the climbs. Restricted for space so what do people like to see when it comes to climbs?

1.) Length
2.) Total Elevation
3.) Average gradient
4.) Maximum gradient

Yup, uploaded my ride but couldn’t edit it. Kept timing out in the app. Eventually was able to edit it on the website

Veloviewer wasn’t able to access it and haven’t got a mail to say relive has uploaded.
