Alan In Belfast has uncovered something of interest to Belfast cyclists in the minutes of a council meeting held in October. In a nutshell, the council’s Development Committee discussed introducing a cycle scheme (similar to Dublin or Paris) to Belfast.
Following a presentation from representatives of Friends of the Earth, Sustrans and the Northern Ireland Cycling Initiative regarding the Belfast Cycle City vision, a motion was put before council to “engage with the Department for Regional Development, and other relevant agencies, in relation to the possibility of the introduction of [...] a cycling scheme in Belfast”.
Schemes in other cities have been a success in encouraging more people to get on bike, and at little cost to the public purse. I’d love to see something like DublinBikes start up in Belfast!
