Over 1,100 people look for Cycling For All in Ireland

Over 1,100 people have signed IrishCycle.com’s petition seeking for national and local government to provide Cycling For All across Ireland.

The petition calls for a transformation of our streets and roads using the Cycling For All principles, and for the Government to provide more funding for walking and cycling, amounting to at least 20% of the capital budget for transport every year.

The details of the campaign can be found at CyclingForAll.ie. The website includes six sections detailing how our public spaces — both urban and rural — can be transformed to be healthier, more productive, and more environmentally friendly.

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
