Cycling For All in Ireland
— Transform our streets and roads, urban and rural, using the Cycling For All principles, as outlined on outline at http://cyclingforall.ie/
— Provide funding for walking and cycling amounting to at least 20% of the capital budget for transport every year.
Why is this important?
Ireland needs to unlock the current suppressed potential for cycling — transport, mental and physical health, and environmental benefits, and also more wide-ranging positives of mass cycling.
These wider benefits include giving teenagers and parents freedom from the parent taxi; freeing many people across the country from the restrictive options of driving or depending on infrequent public transport; and supporting “last mile” trips to high-quality public transport.
