Dublin City Council, with the assistance of funding supplied by the National Transport Authority (NTA), have recently installed a batch of on-street cycle parking. The locations of the stands span across the city centre and will provide some more much needed on-street parking facilities for cyclists in Dublin.

The installations of stainless steel Sheffield Stands have been fitted at the following locations:
- Capel Street- northern end – 11 stands
- Swift Row – 5 Stands
- Bride Road – 5 Stands
- Luke Street – 14 stands
- Francis Street- (Thomas Street end) – 10 Stands
- Exchange Street Upper- 7 Stands
- Charlemont Street – 5 Stands
- Clanbrassil Street- either side of Fumbally Lane – 10 stands
- Mary Street – 9 Stands
- Thomas Davis Street – 10 Stands
- Ryder’s Row – 16 stands
Dublin City Council is currently working on a further batch of cycle parking, it is hoped these additional stands will be installed later in 2016.
It is important to note, as outlined in our Keep Your Bike Safe blog post, always secure your bike against theft by investing in good quality bicycle locks. Preferably a U-lock should be used to attached the frame of the bicycle to the fixed stand. A separate cable lock should then be used to secure both wheels of the bicycle to the stand also. Please visit your local bicycle shop if you are in doubt about the quality of your lock or need advice on what best suits your cycling needs.
