Cllr Shay Brennan, the Council Cycle Champion and Chair of the Cycle Forum, stated,
I welcome this initiative and hope that as many schools as possible will apply. I also welcome the roll out of ‘Cycle Right’ in schools, the National Standard for Cycle Training. The programme, produced and supported by the Department of Transport, Tourism and Sport, the Road Safety Authority and Cycling Ireland, with input from central and local agencies and other groups, will provide practical cycle safety and skills training to school children and will help them become competent and confident cyclists".
dlr actively promotes cycling as a safe healthy travel mode and is currently developing a number of cycling infrastructure schemes in the County including the Wyattville Road Improvement scheme and Stillorgan Road cycle improvements. A County Wide Cycle Map and route leaflets are available to help cyclists plan their routes when cycling in the County and can be found at http://www.dlrcoco.ie/en/travel-transport/traffic-management/cycling
