— Screening are free but booking required for most events.
Dutch documentary ‘Why We Cycle’ is getting its Dublin premiere this Monday June 11, Maynooth on Tuesday June 12, and in Limerick, Sligo and Dungarvan on Thursday June 14.
“It is not a film about policy and strategy. Instead, it is more of a manifesto, showing people why they should want to aspire a cycling society,” said Marco te Brömmelstroet (aka Cycling Professor), a producer of the documentary, when interviewed by Carlton Reid of bikebiz.com.
Brömmelstroet said the film should help advocates to “know what to ask from your politicians and why you should start fighting for such a future.”
All are free screenings organisation by the Dublin, Maynooth, Limerick, Sligo, and Waterford cycle campaigns, respectively, as part of Bike Week. The film is 57mins long.
