WATCH: This Video Highlights Just How Scary It Can Be To Cycle In Dublin

Cycling in Dublin city has been very topical of late.

With cyclists highlighting the dangers and stress of cycling in the city and being fed up with careless drivers, and vice versa with drivers voicing their anger with cyclists.

It's a bit of a mess. 

Brian Mullarkey, of CycleSound, sent us this unsettling video which highlights "why you shouldn't cycle in the blind spot of a bus", this morning: 

Facebook user, Maeve Davidson, left this comment under the video:

"Buses and bicycles are not compatible road companions. I don't know what the answer is but this gives me nightmares."

And we have to agree with her, this does not make for easy watching. 

CycleSound aim to promote the act of being a sound cyclist. 

"We want to create some etiquette between cyclists, and make commuting more enjoyable."


Have you had a similar experience? Let us know in the comments.
