On your bike.

A major protest cycle will take place today. The starting point is Merrion Square West [Dublin 2] opposite the National Gallery of Ireland beside the Dublin Bike station.
We will be meeting from 5.15pm. We aim to arrive at the Dáil just before 6pm. We have partnered with our colleagues iBikeDublin who will be protesting on the day with Dublin Cycling Campaign.
The goal of this protest is to remind all election candidates that cyclists are voters and that we will vote in our droves for candidates serious about bringing about a positive change in transport policy with the bicycle at the fore!
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 Cycling For All campaign petition.
One of the principles of Cycling For All is to allocate 20% of the transport budget to be spent on Cycling and walking investment. We will be asking this of MEPs also.
