Minister Brian Hayes welcomes European Cyclists' Federation to Dublin

Minister Brian Hayes joined members of Dublin Cycling Campaign and Cyclist.ie, The Irish Cycling Advocacy Network, to publicise the AGM of the European Cyclists’ Federation’s Annual General Meeting which will take place from the 24 – 27 April 2014 at the Wood Quay venue in Dublin. Over seventy European cycling campaigners from twenty different countries will attend and they represent 50 million utility cyclists across Europe.

This is the largest gathering of everyday cycling planning and advocacy experts in the Northern Hemisphere in 2014. During the course of the Dublin AGM, delegates will share expertise and ideas on how to recreate strong cycling cultures throughout Europe.

“Ireland must take in the lessons from European countries that have an established and thriving cycling culture, in relation to growing cycling and getting a balanced transport system. By hosting the event in Dublin, European experts will be on hand to offer their knowledge and ideas. It’s a real opportunity for us to learn,” said Dr. Mike McKillen, Spokesperson for Cyclist.ie and Dublin Cycling Campaign.

Minister Hayes will welcome delegates on behalf of the Government at the conference on Sat 26 April at the Wood Quay Venue.
