That cycling is a normal part of transport and everyday life in Ireland.
To act as a non-governmental organisation for purposes which are beneficial to the community and to be a national voice in promoting cycling as an integral part of the transport system, and as an enjoyable, healthy, low-cost and environmentally-friendly activity in its own right.
- That a minimum of 10% of transport’s capital funding is allocated to cycling.
- That the government’s National Cycle Policy Framework (2009) is implemented in full – and this includes appropriate staffing and training within the appropriate government departments, agencies and local government.
- That legislative changes so as to make cycling safer and easier (e.g. Safe Overtaking) are introduced, and that all traffic legislation related to creating a safer cycling environment is properly enforced.
- That our transport network is radically recast so as to include high quality cycle and walking-friendly infrastructure for all ages and abilities, which is integrated with all forms of public transport.
- That Cyclist.ie becomes a much stronger, more influential, inclusive, and effective umbrella group of cycling advocacy groups, which captures the views of its wide and diverse membership – and the many types of people who cycle or would like to cycle but are currently deterred because of a hostile road environment.
