Join the Cycling Study Tour to the Netherlands in September

Are you a politician, cycling campaigner, or professional with a focus on cycling and based in Ireland? Join us for a low-cost cycling study tour to the Netherlands at the end of September to experience world-class cycling infrastructure and get the story behind it.

Following successful study tours in 2015 and 2017, this three-day cycling study tour is your chance to get expert insight into a cycling culture where nearly everybody cycles, as a means of getting from A to B.

We will be staying in Utrecht, with trips by train to Amsterdam on one day, and Nijmegen and Eindhoven on another. We will see the near-finished largest bicycle parking unit in the world, iconic bicycle overpasses and bridges, and the standard cycling infrastructure which supports Dutch cycling.

Hello Reader... 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 February, 210 readers have kindly become monthly subscribers -- thank you very much to all that have!

But currently, it's only around 1.3% of readers who subscribe. So, if you can, please join them and subscribe today via ko-fi.com/irishcycle/tiers
