NI Cycling Strategy

Cyclist.ie has made contributions about everyday cycling strategy to the NI Assembly Regional Development sub-committee at Stormont as well as to NI Minister for DRD, Danny Kennedy MLA, and his officials.

Some members of Cyclist.ie will be attending at the public seminar on the Strategy on 16 October in Belfast.

In the ROI we are at the half-way stage with our NCPF (2009) which sets a target of 10% of everyday trips to be made by bike by 2020. The target is slipping away unless the government commits in the Budget next Tuesday to enhanced funding for cycling promotion and the establishment of a national Cycling Officer and a team of specialists based at DoTTAS to really drive the promotion of cycling for commuting for work and school, shopping, children socialising around their neighbourhoods, etc.
