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”.

Subscription drive update: IrishCycle.com reached its target of 270 subscribers by the end of August -- thank you to all who have helped! Our new target is to have 300 subscribers by the end of 2022 -- originally this was hoped to be exceeded by the first year of running the site full time (end of October).
If you can help push IrishCycle.com above 300 subscribers, please subscribe today for €5 or more. If you have already done so -- thank you!
Please remember, every month there's a natural drop-off in subscriptions due to people getting new cards, cards stolen, Revolut not topped up etc.
IrishCycle.com is a reader-funded journalism publication. Effectively it's an online newspaper covering news and analyses of cycling and related issues, including cycle route designs, legal changes, and pollical and cultural issues.
There are examples, big and small, which show that the reader-funded or listener-funding model can work to support journalism -- from the Dublin Inquirer and The Guardian to many podcasts. To make it work for IrishCycle.com, it just needs enough people like you to believe!
Monthly subscriptions will give IrishCycle.com's journalism a dependable base of support. But please don't take free access for granted. Last year IrishCycle.com had an average of 15,800 readers per month and we know our readers include people who cycle and those who don't, politicians, officials and campaigners.
I know only a small percentage of readers will see the value of keeping this open enough to subscribe, that's the reality of the reader-funded model. But more support is needed to keep this show on the road.
The funding drive was started in November 2021 and, as of the start of June 2022, 250 readers have kindly become monthly subscribers -- thank you very much to all that have!
But currently, it's only around 1.6% of readers who subscribe. So, if you can, please join them and subscribe today via ko-fi.com/irishcycle/tiers
