Women on Wheels is a group within Dublin Cycling Campaign which has spent the last year researching women’s experience of cycling in Dublin, thanks to a grant from the Community Foundation. You may be aware that only 30% of people who cycle in Dublin identify as women - Women on Wheels has been asking women to tell us about their experiences on Dublin’s roads.
Manfred Neun, President of the European Cyclists’ Federation, will address an Irish audience on the topic of Cycling Makes Sense – Why Government Investment in Cycling Makes Good Economic and Social Sense!. This is an unmissable event - do please spread the word far and wide, and arrive early to get a seat! More details on the ECF and Manfred here: http://www.ecf.com/about-us/board/
You may be aware that the international Velo-city conference, the largest bicycle related conference in the world, was held in Dublin this June. The conference, which took place over 4 full days with nearly 1,400 delegates, ranged across many topics, from bicycle safety, cycling infrastructure, bicycle innovations, the social and cultural changes driven by cycling on a global scale, technology, health, behavioural change, urban and infrastructure policies, to mobility and transport generally.
As part of the Erasmus+ ‘Sustainable Mobility, Sustainable Community’ cultural exchange programme and linking into the Velo-city International Cycle Planning Conference taking place in Dublin, Cyclist.ie, Dublin Cycling Campaign and An Taisce Green Schools are delighted to have Heike Bunte based in Hamburg in Germany speaking to an Irish audience about trikes and tricycles. An abstract of her paper and a short bio for Heike are below.

Over 25 Irish delegates attended the amazing Velo-city International Cycle Planning Conference in June 2017 in The Netherlands. It was organised jointly by the European Cyclists’ Federation (ECF) and Region of Nijmegen - Arnhem. There were 1500+ attendees at the week-long event drawn from academia, industry, advocacy, the political and policy-making spheres, and realms as diverse as public health, engineering, planning, tourism, sociology and architecture.
Dr. Paul Corcoran, Chairperson of Dublin Cycling Campaign, and Dr. Damien Ó Tuama, National Cycling Coordinator, will lead us into the new year 2017 with a session exploring the beauty of cycling in Iceland and informing us on the latest developments on the cycle campaigning front in our nearest neighbour to the west of Ireland!
The National Transport Authority (NTA) have at last published suggested plans for the section of the Sutton to Sandycove (S2S) Greenway from Irishtown to Seapoint. These plans have been long awaited, and are now open for public consultation so you can have your say! Dublin Cycling Campaign is delighted to host a major public meeting on the proposals, just 4 days before the public submissions are due to be made to the NTA.
