Cork Cycle Campaign seeks ‘quick wins’ in 2021

Cork Cycle Campaign is seeking Cork City Council to carry out ‘quick wins’ in 2021 and have complied a list of improvements.

“Quick Wins are an important part of the puzzle to make Cork a welcoming, attractive,and safe city to cycle in. No one project or scheme will help achieve this goal. A widerange of solutions, from large investment projects, down to routine cycle lanesweeping, all contribute towards this,” the group said.

The Cork Cycling Campaign said: “The Cork Cycling Campaign appreciates the work and projects delivered in recentyears by Cork City Council, the National Transport Authority, and other keystakeholders. It is hoped that the projects listed in this report, will achieve the samelevel of success in ensuring that cycling continues to be a viable option for people totravel in Cork and helps Cork transition towards a greener, cleaner, and healthier city.”

The campaign said that the projects have been selected by its volunteers and approved by its committee of the Campaign. It said a longer list of projects was drawn upand this short list was selected on the basis of factors, including but not limited to: the ability of the project to make it easier or more attractive to cycle in Cork; the ability of the project to make it safer to cycle in Cork; and the ability of Cork City Council to deliver the project in the short-term.

IrishCycle.com is reader-funded journalism. That means it's funded by readers like you.

September subscription drive update: IrishCycle.com has reached its target of 270 subscribers by the end of August -- thank you to all who have helped! Our new target is to have 300 subscribers by the end of 2022 -- originally this was hoped to be exceeded by the first year of running the site full time (end of October), but this is unlikely and so the new target is the end of the year.

If you can help push IrishCycle.com above 300 subscribers, please subscribe today for €5 or more. If you have already done so -- thank you!

Please remember, every month there's a natural drop-off in subscriptions due to people getting new cards, cards stolen, Revolut not topped up etc.

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 June 2022, 250 readers have kindly become monthly subscribers -- thank you very much to all that have!

But currently, it's only around 1.6% of readers who subscribe. So, if you can, please join them and subscribe today via ko-fi.com/irishcycle/tiers
