Oireachtas All-Party Bike Week Cycle

We had a super turnout of supporters of cycling from the Dáil, Seanad and beyond.

Taking a quick spin around Dublin was a great way to catch up with Oireachtas members who appreciate how good cycling is for mental and physical health, how it offers real economic opportunities, and can help restore local and global environments.

Ivana Bacik TD (Lab), Lynn Boylan TD (SF), Richard Bruton TD (FG), Patrick Costello (GP), Senator Roisin Garvey (GP), Senator Gerard Horken, Senator Alice-Mary Higgins (Ind), Pauline O’Reilly TD (GP),  Darren O’Rourke (SF) Senator Marie Sherlock (Lab), were members who made time for cycling.

We were very grateful to Ivana and staff for gathering the All-Party group and organising the event, in cooperation with our hard-working Irish Cycling Campaign Vice-chair, Dave Tobin. Also a shout-out to Dublin Cycling Campaign members who came along.

‘Great to see Bike Week uniting the likes of Fianna Fáil, Fine Gael, the Greens, Labour, Sinn Féin and others, and for once no-one competing for first place!’
