Irish politicians: See what a cycling-friendly place looks like — join our Dutch cycling study tour on the last weekend in August! There’s nothing like seeing it for yourself and hearing from Dutch cycling experts. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for details.
Or, if you’re our adverage reader, please share this with politicians, especially councillors, who you have contact with.
Our last Dutch study tour in 2015 included a mix of councillors, civil servents, consultants and campaigners and our Dutch cycling notes mini-series covered the personal perspectives of some of those of the 2015 group:
- “If it doesn’t work for children, we haven’t yet succeed” -Eugene Doran, member Dublin Cycling Campaign
- “I have never felt as relaxed and happy cycling” – Barbara Connolly, Cycling Standard Development Officer, Cycling Ireland.
- “The freedom and ease to simply cycle where you need to go” – Keith Byrne, former chairman of the Dublin Cycling Campaign.
- “The infrastructure was there to make cycling as safe and pleasant as possible” – Phil Skelton, Stayin’ Alive at 1.5 campaign.
