Dutch Cycling Study Tours in October 2022: Calling politicians and professionals

EXPRESSIONS OF INTEREST: Are you a politician or professional involved with the roll-out of cycling infrastructure in Ireland?

With Ireland spending nearly €1 million a day on walking and cycling, it’s best for those involved with the rollout of projects to get it right by immersively experiencing cycling in Europe’s leading bicycle nation.

Our study tours — run with the help of Dutch cycling expert André Pettinga — are usually three days long and include expert insight into a cycling culture where nearly everybody cycles, as a means of getting from A to B.

Before confirming details, we’re currently looking at demand and options for having a different mix of study tours. So, at this point, we are welcoming expressions of interest from councils, councillors, professionals involved in cycling and campaigners — email cian.ginty@gmail.com.

We’re looking at two possible study tours in the week starting Monday, October 17:

  • A city-focused study tour in Utrecht with a secondary focus on inter-urban routes and other urban areas
  • A study tour focused on smaller urban and rural areas.
  • We can also facilitate other dates or possibilities for larger groups.

Running both will be depending on demand. If there isn’t demand for both, a more blended tour is a possibility.

If you’re a politician, campaigner, or professional focused in some way focused on cycling, please get in contact — cian.ginty@gmail.com.
