...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...

TCD said: “The symposium, hosted by the renowned Cycling and Society Research Group, aims to bring together a diverse community of researchers, policymakers, industry experts, and cycling campaigners to explore the multifaceted relationship between cycling, society, and sustainable urban development. With a focus on fostering dialogue and knowledge exchange, the symposium promises to be an enlightening experience for all participants.”

Professor Brian Caulfield, head of discipline of Civil Structural & Environmental Engineering at TCD, said: “We are delighted to be hosting this symposium in the School in September. This is the first time that the symposium has been held outside of the UK and we are excited to share the fantastic work that’s been done by researchers and advocacy groups for increased cycling here in Dublin.”

The opening talk will be provided by Minister for Transport and Environment, Climate and Communications, Eamon Ryan, and the key note speech by Professor in Urban Planning at Aalborg University Malene Freudendal-Pedersen, who has published extensively on the status of cycling in Copenhagen and the politics of planning urban mobilities in light of climate change.

The cost of the event is €30 for one day in person attendance, €60 for two day in person attendance, €15 for one or two day remote attendance, and €20 for the Conference dinner. Registration can be found 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.
