...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...

The organisers said that the symposium presents research and ideas from cycling researchers and practitioners who are interested in the social and cultural significance of urban cycling and in advancing pro-cycling policy.

Some of the topics to be explored in parallel sessions include exploring cycleway opposition, advancing cargo bike ownership, how to achieve behaviour change, the #andshecycles programme, different ways of implementing cycling in cities, and the emerging cycling city experience in Cork.

The mini-conference will run on Friday at Cork City Hall from 2pm to 5.15pm, ending with a social cycle through Cork City and on to the car-free Marina Park, Then, on Saturday the venue will switch to The Hub at University College Cork where the event will run from 9am to 4.45pm.

The full programme can be found online, with details of the parallel sessions also available, and bookings can be made for €25 at

...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.
