IrishCycle.com is reader-funded journalism, but our subscription numbers have stalled at around 250 subscribers. 20 more subscribers by the end of August is the current target. Can you help? If you can, please subscribe today for €5 or more. If you have already done so -- thank you!

Skerries Cycling Festival to be held tomorrow

One of north Dublin’s seaside towns, Skerries, is to host a one-day Skerries Cycling Festival tomorrow Sunday, August 22.

This is reader-funded journalism, but it needs more support -- our target is 20 more subscribers by the end of August... can you help? Subscribe today.

The Skerries Cycling Festival will include two group cycles, a 5km fun cycle and a 25km social cycle. Other events include free bike checks and a showcasing of a Cycling Without Age trishaw. More details can be found at skerriesca.com.

The Skerries Cycling Initiative said: “The Skerries Cycling Festival will be all about encouraging people to integrate more active travel into their daily lives so that they can enjoy the fun and other benefits of cycling.

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 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
