European Cycle Challenge

What is the European Cycle Challenge?

The European Cycle Challenge was launched in 2012 by the University of Bologna, and every year since has encouraged cyclists throughout Europe to register their trips throughout the month of May. This year, for only the second time, Dublin was registered for the challenge, and the first time that Limerick has been registered.

The urban cycling challenge is being promoted by Smarter Travel Workplaces initiative.  Its aim is very much aligned to that of Smarter Travel Workplaces, that is of finding ways to encourage alternative choices to the car on some every  trips such as going to work, school or the shops, and in doing so help reduce congestions and CO2 emissions.

The Challenge is open to everyone that cycles in Dublin City or County areas or in Limerick metropolitan Area. We hope that many workplaces will join in the fun, in particular Smarter Travel Workplaces Partner organisations. It runs for all of May!
