Let's go Dutch! What can we learn from the Netherlands?
The Netherlands is recognised a world leader in terms of cycling numbers and facilities. In September a group from Dublin went on a study visit to Utrecht to see what lessons can be learnt for Ireland. The study trip was organised by Cian Ginty of www.irishcycle.com and the group included planners, engineers, road safety officers, councillors, and cycling advocates. As well as Utrecht, the group visited and cycled around Amsterdam, Nijmegen, and Eindhoven, travelling by train, with bicycles, between cities. Members of the group will give an overview of what they saw and what could be applied to Dublin and other Irish towns and cities.
The meeting will run from 7pm to 8.30pm with tea and coffee available from 6.30pm. Afterwards you are welcome to join us in the lovely Library Bar of the Central Hotel to continue the discussions.
Public meeting. All welcome!
