Invitation to ECF round-table on cycling promotion

Dear MEP

I am writing to you in your position as MEP representing a constituency for Ireland.

With unprecedented levels of overweight/obesity in our society among young people everyday cycling is a major public health-related activity, and of interest to many people in your EU constituency, particularly in relation to Greenway development. ‘Cyclist.ie – The Irish Cycling Advocacy Network – would like to invite you to register to participate with other MEPs and the new Transport Commissioner in the first round-table of the ‘Cycling Forum Europe’, which takes place in Brussels next Thursday 4th December.

Cyclist.ie is the member for Ireland of The European Cyclists’ Federation (ECF), which invites you to take part in a high-level round-table on ‘Cycling For Growth’ on Thursday 4th December from 13:30 to 17:00 h. More information.

More on funding opportunities

As you will note this particular round-table will deal with 3 specific issues:

  • Fiscal Incentives for everyday cycling
  • Job creation in cycling businesses
  • Funding for Cycling promotion and infrastructure
I am sure these areas have major crossovers with your own areas of interest, and you will be able to ascertain what benefits can be gained directly from increasing funding for cycling, but also for cycling here in Ireland.

Please let me know if you might manage to make this event or if this is not feasible then perhaps one of your staff could go along.

Thanking you sincerely, and wishing you all the best in your continued work in the EU.

Yours faithfully,Dr. Mike McKillen

Chairman of Cyclist.ie – The Irish Cycling Advocacy Network
