European Mobility Week will end this Sunday with car free events in locations such as College Green, Malahide and a Cyclovia in Limerick.

On Sunday, Limerick City and County Council in partnership with Limerick Cycling Campaign is to host a Cyclovia event:

Galway City Council has been proving new bicycle parking stands as part of the week:
It's European Mobility Week and @GalwayCityCo are busy installing badly-needed bike parking around the city!
We're told 180 permanent spaces will be installed in the coming weeks.
Please tag us in any new bike parking locations you see and post a photo if you can 🚲 pic.twitter.com/ihytk0AajF

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
