Trinity College Dublin launches Ireland’s first bicycle parking for people with disabilities

NEWS IN BREIF: Trinity College Dublin as launched Ireland’s first bicycle parking for people with disabilities.

It is designed to accommodate bicycles used by people with disabilities, including hand cycles and trikes.

It was put in by request from a staff member and followed a guide by UK group Wheels for Wellbeing.

I am editor of IrishCycle.com and have reported on and commented on cycling in Ireland for over a decade. My background is in journalism -- I have a BA in Journalism from DCU and HDip in Print Journalism from BCFE. I wrote about cycling for national newspapers, and then started CyclingInDublin.com for overflow stories. Later the website was re-branded to reflect a more national focus.

  1. Seems like a very good idea. I hope it doesn’t end up being used by others than those for whom it is intended.

  2. It is astonishing that it is the first one isnt it? Our so called advanced liberal society and especially our self-righteous universities lecture us all on equality but always leave people with disabilities last on the list of special interest groups.
