And no it’s not really off topic, since as it’s National Bike week this week, cyclists in County Mayo will be given number plates for their bikes. The point of this strange idea is actually quite a clever one. It’s a novel programme being implemented to raise awareness of cycle safety in the county.
The arrangement is part of a number of events taking place in Mayo as part of National Bike Week.
Noel Gibbons, a road safety officer who works for Mayo County Council, has faith that the number plates initiative will help raise awareness of cycle safety on the road.
“The purpose of the number plates is to raise awareness around cycle safety and encourage more people to take to the two-wheel mode of transport rather than the four wheels,” Gibbons said.
“We also want to get the young cyclist to remember that they have a responsibility for their own safety when using a bicycle and motorists to understand the space cyclists need on the road.
“The bright-coloured number plates will have a number and safety message on them and will hang under the bicycle saddle in a bid to increase the chances of other road users seeing the cyclist.”
We hope it all goes well. It’s easy to see the benefit of having a number plate strapped to the back of a bike, as they’re not all that easy to see on high speed A roads but we’re sure this’ll help immensely.

Had an issue with the wrong logo being put on the received plates however following contact with customer services they were happy to send a new set with the correct logo. Customer services were very efficient in dealing with my order. Only negative is that delivery can take longer than specified through a courier service however this did not spoil the overall transaction. Good quality plates.
