European Cycle Challenge
Sinéad Flavin, NTA Smarter Travel Workplaces
The European Cycle Challenge is an annual event since 2012, coordinated through the University of Bologna to encourage cyclists throughout Europe to register their trips throughout the month of May. This year, for only the second time in its history Dublin is participating in the challenge, facilitated through the offices of the NTA Smarter Travel Workplaces unit. Dublin Cycling Campaign and Dublin City Council are also partnering in this fun and exciting venture, for which you can register at http://www.cyclingchallenge.eu/. Its a chance to register Dublin on the European cycling stage!
By using the Cycling365 App to track of your daily commute, join Challenges among urban cyclists that will be organised during the year and see how much CO2 you will save by using your bicycle.
