George Hook owes us €100! Video of cyclists stopping at a red light. (Well, 2 out of 3 cyclists)

Update Wed 24 Feb: Well George has paid up! Not 100 euro, but 1000 euro! Fair play.
I was invited to chat with George and Damien from on today's Right Hook on News Talk 106.

Just after 6pm on Thursday's "The Right Hook" on News Talk 106FM, George Hook offered to donate €100 to charity if any listener could prove that a cyclist stopped at a red-light during that evening's commute.
This arose from a heated debate about the 30KM speed limit, cyclists & general road safety.
Well George, get your cheque book ready!
The video below shows not just 1 but 2 cyclists stopping at a red-light - in full observance of the law!! (jump to 21 secs and 57 secs)
Unfortunately, it also shows one rogue peddler dicing with adventure and making an early break for it. (jump to 1 min 5 sec)
But surely that doesn't cancel out the other two! So, shall we agree to settle for €66?
And what charity to donate to?
George, we'll let you decide.
(This video was recorded at the corner of Pearse St and Westland Row before 7pm on Thursday 18th February.)
