DublinBikes: Tragic Update

I've just read reports that a 51 year old cyclist was killed this morning after being hit by an articulated truck on the Quays in Dublin's City Centre. The RTE report doesn't give much insight into the circumstances, but some of those active on the innnernet are reporting that he was on one of the Dublin Bikes as mentioned yesterday. Either way, it's tragic news and all the more reason for the Transport Minister's cycling path scheme to hurry up and get into place.

Here's what RTE had to say: http://www.rte.ie/news/2009/0915/rta.html

**update 16/09/09: the victim was definitely not on a DublinBike**
