You can now watch the recording of the ‘Developing Safe Rural Cycling Infrastructure’ webinar which took place last week — it was the last of three Irish/Dutch cycling webinars organised by the Embassy of the Netherlands in Ireland and the Dutch Cycling Embassy.

The video includes:

  • Welcome and introduction by Adriaan Palm, Ambassador of the Kingdom of the Netherlands.
  • Caitriona Corr of Cyclist.ie’s Rural Cycling Collective, and sports development officer at Kilkenny Recreation and Sports Partnership .
  • Robert Burns, Dún Laoghaire Rathdown County.
  • Sjors van Duren, consultants Royal HaskoningDHV.
  • Eric Nijland, Landelijk Fietsplatform (national cycling platform).
  • Q&A moderated by Ambassador Palm.

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.
