Virtual Public Meeting: How can cycling enable mobility and independence?

Saturday, 24 April 2021 - 12:00pm

Dublin Cycling Campaign’s vision is a vibrant, liveable city where everybody can safely enjoy everyday walking and cycling, and we advocate for cycling infrastructure that is accessible to people of all ages and abilities. At this virtual public meeting we will explore what cycling can offer for people with disabilities as a form of everyday transport, a mobility aid, and a help to physical and mental wellbeing. Join us on Zoom at 12 noon on Saturday 24 April to hear from a panel of experts about their personal experiences of cycling, their research and campaigning, and the barriers that cyclists with disabilities can face as they try to get around.

Our speakers are:

• Mary Caulfield, journalist and disability activist, Dublin Cycling Campaign Executive Committee member.

• Isabelle Clement, Director of Wheels for Wellbeing, handcyclist.

• Dr Eoghan Clifford, Senior Lecturer Civil Engineering at NUI Galway, 4-time paracycling world champion.

• Ellis Palmer, news journalist and producer, CP handcycler.

This event will be chaired by Joan O’Connell and is organised by Mairéad Forsythe and Siobhán McNamara.
