Photos: 26 cyclists ignoring Prince St signs

You may have seen the Prince Street Bridge temporary walkway, and the incredible amount of signs that have come with it.

The largest of these signs is a large bright red banner that reads ‘Cyclists please dismount’ – but not everyone is paying it attention.

The vast majority of people with bikes, however, obeyed the signs and chose to walk.

Here are the rule breakers in action:
