...I'm sorry to disrupt you while you're reading this article, but without messages like this, IrishCycle.com's reader-funded journalism won't survive. With nearly 1/2 million views and 300k readers so-far this year, it's not just people who are dedicated to cycling that this website reaches. However, the number of subscribers is around 0.6% of readers. While having a large gap between readers/subscribers is standard for non-paywall reader-supported journalism, IrishCycle's journalism needs more support. Don't delay, support monthly or yearly today. Now, back to the article...

The webinars will cover design and planning principles developed by the Netherlands over time and how they can be applied in the Irish context.

The details of the three webinars are as follows:

  • Theme Session 1 on Thursday, 3 September – 13.00-14.00 (IST) – “Bicycle Parking: Building bike parking facilities and successful integration with public transport” with contributions from Brendan O’Brien, Head of Technical Services, Dublin City Council, Folkert Piersma, Project Manager, ProRail and Monique Harmsen, CEO, LumiGuide.
  • Theme Session 2 on Thursday, 17 September – 13.00-14.00 (IST) – “The Role of Business in Supporting Cycling and Creating Livable Spaces” with contributions from Graeme McQueen, Head of Communications, Dublin Chamber of Commerce, Erik Tetteroo, Mobility Consultant, APPM, and Kees van Ommeren, Partner, Decisio Research.
  • Theme Session 3 on Thursday, 1 October – 13.00-14.00 (IST) – “Developing Safe Rural Cycling Infrastructure” with contributions from Robert Burns, Director of Infrastructure and Climate Change, Dun Laoghaire Rathdown County Council, Eric Nijland, Director, Fietsplatform, and Sjors van Duren, Cycling Consultant, Royal Haskoning.

...That's the end of the article. Keep scrolling if you want to the comments, but IrishCycle.com *NEEDS* readers like you to keep it that way. It only requires a small percentage of readers to give a bit each month or every year to keep IrishCycle.com's journalism open to all. Thank you.
