Children and parents who take part in the D12BikeBus are asking as many members of the public as possible to join them on Friday, April 1, to show support for quicker action to make cycling in the Dublin 12 area safe.
Aodhán King of D12BikeBus said: “The children of the Bike Bus are asking you to join them April 1st to make their voices heard. The bike bus is parents and children, banding together, supported by volunteers, so that they can cycle safely to school.”
“On the morning of Friday, April 1, they are asking if you could join them on their cycle to school, to show your support for their efforts. If you can’t be with them in person that day, they ask that wherever you are you cycle in solidarity with them,” he said.
He said: “This shouldn’t be needed, what is needed is: Immediate interventions for safe cycling for children in cities, towns and villages around the country, and long term solutions to increase the safety of all members of our communities on our roads.”
The D12BikeBus departs at 7:55am at Eppel Opticians, Crumlin Road, Dublin 12.
