Safe Cycling

There’s lots of tips for people starting to embrace cycling or for those who wish to cycle more safely.

Get Writing! - Get Active!

We want you to have your own voice on cycling related schemes! We in the Cycling Campaign submit our views on schemes, and regularly meet with agencies and Local Authorities, to put forward our views. But you as an individual can also have your say! It is important that we all work together, in the hope of ensuring that what gets planned is of good quality.

A Fold-Away Bike Helmet....For Real!?

Helmet Innovation

This one is hard to believe, but it could revolutionise our whole view of the role of Bicycle Helmets! Here is a foldable recyclable helmet, that is likely to retail for under €5, as reported in last week’s Irish Times - http://www.irishtimes.com/business/fold-away-5-bike-helmet-wins-dyson-aw… . Coined by its inventor as an ‘Eco Helmet’ it might encourage a lot of sceptical non helmet users to give it a try!?

Cyclist.ie and Dublin Cycling Campaign strongly endorse the Jake’s Legacy campaign

Dublin Cycling Campaign / Cyclist.ie– The Irish Cycling Advocacy Network – strongly endorses the ‘Jake’s Legacy’ campaign to introduce lower speed limits in residential areas and estates. We have been campaigning for 30 kph to become the default urban speed limit here in Ireland, similar to many UK and European cities.

Monthly Public Meeting - Bicycle Collisions: Why are they Being Under-reported?

Our public talk this month will be presented by Prof Brian Caulfield of Trinity. He will speak on his recent paper “The safety challenge of increased cycling”. This discusses the under-reporting of RTC’s (Road Traffic Collisions) involving cyclists and presents a number of policy relevant conclusions. This is an unmissable event for anyone who has been in a bicycle collision or a near-miss or anyone on a mission to avoid ever being in a collision! Spread the word!
