Belfast Cycle City - Mass Bike Ride to Stormont, Tue 15th September 4pm
On Tuesday 15th September there will be a mass bike ride to Stormont.
This is the FINAL BIG PUSH of the campaign to deliver our vision of Belfast as one of the top ten cycling cities in the UK. This is your BIGGEST and BEST opportunity to influence cycling in N. Ireland for the next ten years.
We need YOU to join us, cycling up the road to Stormont to show public support for the campaign.
At the event on Tuesday, the organisers will meet the Minister for Regional Development, Conor Murphy to present him with our vision for cycling in Belfast and ask him for his support. The campaign aims to increase the amount of cycling in Belfast to 10% of all journeys by 2020. In order to do this, the group has identified the need for an annual spend of £15 per person on cycling infrastructure and the need for a cycling strategy from 2010 to 2020.
Meet at the main Newtownards Road entrance to Stormont at 4pm, Tuesday 15th Sept with your bicycle. Please pass this invitation to all your friends; we want to make as big an impact on Stormont as possible.
For more information about the event, or any other aspect of the campaign, please contact Andrew McMurray, Belfast Friends of the Earth Co-ordinator, 0790 99 00 883, firstname.lastname@example.org, www.belfastcyclecity.org.uk
