Clever cycling in London video highlights the need for segregated cycle lanes. Dublin planners take note

In a clever and funny video comedian Jay Foreman takes us through why cycling doesn’t work in London.

He also manages to illustrate his points without blaming motorists. Instead he talks about the need for planners to come up with better solutions to keep cyclists safe from cars, vans, trucks and busses.
