The principals of CyclingForAll.ie are Space, Priority, Continuity and quality, Permeability, Contra-flow for cycling, Integration and connectivity and funding for walking and cycling amounting to at least 20% of the national capital transport budget every year.
Contact your local politicians and candidates
Tell your local councillors and your TDs that you want Cycling for All across Ireland with the required design and funding of 20% of the transport budget to back it up. Check if they are signed up at the national list or local list (these lists will be updated).
If you don’t know your local politicians or need to find their contact details, you can find them via whoismytd.com.
