Midsummer Liffey Cycle - Support a Safe Segregated Liffey Cycle Route
Bike to Work scheme
If you’ve thinking about cycling to work but haven’t worked up the courage yet, there’s a great article over on Momentum Mag that might help you.
Denise Wrathall gives some tips things like what to wear, what to do if you get a flat tire or if it starts raining.
If you missed the talk by Arlene Finn of the Smarter Travel Workplaces/ Smarter Travel Campus programmes in the National Transport Authority on “Smarter Travel for Employers - A SMART decision” her presentation is attached here.
Arlene talked about the 116+ large employers with whom the Smarter Travel Unit work. A number of these have achieved a reduction in car use of 19% and the average increase in cycling of over 30 partner organisations was 131%!
Pre-Budget submission from Cyclist.ie, the Irish cycling advocacy network.

The Cycle to Work Scheme is a tax incentive scheme which aims to encourage employees to cycle to and from work.
All the details available on http://www.citizensinformation.ie/
Using the Bike to Work scheme, your employer can help you obtain a brand new bike and safety equipment worth up to €1,000.
The cycling campaign strongly supports this scheme and has made submissions to the Government for it to be retained and expanded to other groups of people, e.g. children, the unemployed.
Help us do more for cycling in Dublin, please consider getting involved.
