...I'm sorry to disrupt you while you're reading this article, but without messages like this,'s reader-funded journalism won't survive. With nearly 1/2 million views and 300k readers so-far this year, it's not just people who are dedicated to cycling that this website reaches. However, the number of subscribers is around 0.6% of readers. While having a large gap between readers/subscribers is standard for non-paywall reader-supported journalism, IrishCycle's journalism needs more support. Don't delay, support monthly or yearly today. Now, back to the article...

Speakers are to include Paul McGartoll from the National Transport Authority, and Hugh McCarthy and Rachel Farrell from AECOM.

In its description of the event, Engineers Ireland notes: “In this talk, the NTA will highlight what CycleConnects looks to achieve and why it aligns with national strategies and objectives. AECOM will then outline the process of how this was undertaken such as conducting international research on cycle networks, what data was collected and challenges/opportunities arising from developing a cycle network in each county.”

...That's the end of the article. Keep scrolling if you want to the comments, but *NEEDS* readers like you to keep it that way. It only requires a small percentage of readers to give a bit each month or every year to keep's journalism open to all. Thank you.
