Cycle in support of Liffey route on Sunday

A family-friendly mass cycle along the Liffey Quays in support of the Liffey Cycle Route is to take place tomorrow Sunday June 10.

The Dublin Cycling Campaign said the group cycle is to start at 11am from the Wellington Monument in the Phoenix Park and then cycle along the north quays in one large group as far as the Point Village.

The cycling campaign said: “Last September the National Transport Authority put the Liffey Cycle Route project on hold, pending a review of all possible design options for the route. The results of that review were supposed to be published in April, but there has been a further delay and we don’t expect to see the report before the end of the summer.”

“Enough is enough! The Liffey Cycle Route, which would create a safe, segregated cycle track linking the Phoenix Park to the Point Village, is needed now more than ever. More people are cycling along the Liffey Quays every day, and even more people would like to be able to cycle along the Quays.”

They said: “The Liffey Cycle Route needs support, and it needs support in BIG numbers, so please spread the word about Sunday’s event”.
