Gardai tell DIY enthusiast to keep to the mountains rather than the motorway

An early morning commute on the M11 was brought to an abrupt halt earlier when Gardai were alerted to a person travelling on a motorised bicycle.

According to Gardai, the ‘DIY enthusiast’ had attached a petrol engine to the bicycle.

Gardai said the cyclist was travelling on the motorway with no insurance, correct licence or helmet.

The bike was seized and a court appearance will follow in the future.

In a statement, a Garda spokesperson said: “DIY enthusiast! With petrol engine on mountain bike @ M11 no Ins/d.licence/helmet Bike seized and court to follow. Stick to Mountain and not m/way.
