Cyclist.ie – The Irish Cycling Advocacy Network – is a lobby group for everyday, or utility cyclists, founded in 2008 to:
- Promote commuting, leisure/touring, shopping uses of cycling
- Raise the profile of cycling issues
- Campaign/lobby for action at national level
Cyclist.ie is distinct from our friends in Cycling Ireland which promotes sports cycling e.g. high-performance training, running races etc.
Cyclist.ie promotes cycling as an integral part of local transport and an important part of addressing pressing contemporary problems, which include lowering greenhouse gas emissions, traffic congestion, significant health problems arising from sedentary lifestyles, the high cost of motorised transport and the need to revitalise towns and cities.
