'Cycling in cities - Are we really serious?' Edmund Burke Theatre, Trinity College Dublin, June 20th, 7.00pm
"Are we yet taking cycling seriously enough? This is no longer a topic which requires more evidence on the benefits to society of cycling - We have ample evidence, but this is not the stumbling block to getting more people cycling. The real problem is long-term commitment and political will to create an integrated transport strategy." So states Phillip Darnton, OBE, ahead of travelling to Dublin to deliver the 2011 Annual Cycling Lecture entitled 'Cycling in cities - Are we really serious?' Phillip is currently Director of the UK Bicycle Association and was Chairman of Cycling England, the independent expert body on cycling promotion, from 2005 until March 2011. Phillip is a terrific public speaker and advocate of cycling - and this event is not to be missed.
On the same evening, the winners of the prestigious 2011 Golden Pedal Awards will be announced. Details available here: www.dublincycling.ie/goldenpedal2011
