By | 17 April, 2013

Crowd funding is being sought to produce a second edition of the Cycling in Dublin newspaper, for distribution during Bike Week.

cyclingindublin-print2013Following on from the success of the newspaper last year, which was distributed free of charge to 10,000 cyclists (and potential-cyclists) during Bike Week, the call has gone out again for supporters to help fund the production of a second edition.

Using the Fund It web site to gather pledges, people can give as much or as little as they like, to help support the production of the newspaper. However, the more you give, the bigger ‘reward’ you get for your help – with rewards including a copies of the newspaper, bike bells, t-shirts, and advertising space.

The newspaper aims to highlight issues related to cycling in Dublin, such as the quality of our roads and cycle facilities, as well as publishing tips and tricks to make your ride more enjoyable. And you can even suggest ideas for articles, if you want to see something in particular!

This is a great way of helping to promote cycling – and helping to ‘normalise’ it as a method of transport that everyone is happy to use on Dublin’s streets.
