Cycle to the Dáil
A major protest cycle will take place on the 15th May 2019 just before the May local elections on 24th. The starting point and route are to be finalised. We will be meeting from 5.30 to 6pm on the Wednesday evening. We have partnered with our colleagues iBikeDublin who will be protesting on the day with Dublin Cycling Campaign. We will be reaching out to other like minded organisations in the coming weeks.
The goal of this protest is to highlight that cyclists are voters too and we have a voice. The logo #iBikeIVote represents this clearly. We will be asking all local election candidates from Dublin city council, Fingal county council, South Dublin council and Dun Laoghaire Rathdown council to sign the http://cyclingforall.ie/ campaign which as a number of requests such as 20% transport spend on Cycling and walking investment.
We will also be taking this opportunity to vote for MEP’s for the European elections. We will be highlighting over the next few weeks which candidates for the local and European elections we recommend to give your vote.
What can you do? Email or call your local Cllr’s who are running for election and ask them to sign the cyclingforall campaign. If they sign it!? Get back to us and we will publish a register of the candidates who have supported this initiative.
See you soon!
