Cycling For All is aiming to be a decentralised online campaign which seeks cycling for all ages and abilities across Ireland.
What’s the problem?
Cycling is not currently attractive to most people — survey after survey shows the main barrier to cycling is fear of heavy or fast moving motorised traffic. Segregation is needed, but space, priority and quality is needed too to make cycling attractive.
Ireland has for too long tried a mix of UK and Danish cycle route designs. The design of new cycle routes remain lacking in quality, not connected enough and overall unsuitable to attract Cycling for All.
What’s Cycling for All?
It’s cycling for “all ages and abilities” where walking and cycling are attractive, enjoyable and safe for everybody from young children to retirees and everybody in-between.
What’s the solution?
Ireland needs to follow the cycling, general street design and planning processes of the Netherlands, where cycling for all is the norm. Read more about the solution here.
