The Only Way is Up!

Cycling to work, college or school in Cork is up 33 per cent since 2006!

Ok maybe it was quite low to start with in 2006 but then again it was the height of the Celtic Tiger so people had plenty of money to buy bikes....and cars!


Anyway congratulations to all of you who cycle regularly! The more cyclists on the road the slower the traffic becomes which makes it more comfortable for others to start cycling - so it's a snowball effect. I'm not sure what percentage of commuters that would be. Probably still quite low and the aim is to get 10 per cent cycling by 2020 - which is not that far away.
So as one political slogan goes "A lot done a lot more to do!"
