A group from the Dutch Cycling Embassy visited Greystones with the Dutch Ambassador. They are experts at designing cycling facilities and keen to persuade other countries to cycle more like the Dutch do.
They gave a talk in the Greystones Municipal rooms to some Councillors and some Council Engineers. Later on they cycled around Greystones and looked at facilities at some schools and other parts of the town.
I cycled around the town with them. The picture shows us inspecting the cycling lanes on the seafront by the ‘Seaside Bear’
‘I am keen to get more children cycling to school and also encourage safe storage for electric bikes at the station. Both of these would cut down car usage’ said Cllr Derek Mitchell (FG)
