The Cork Cycling Campaign was started in 1999 in Cork City by a group of enthusiastic cyclists who want to make Cork County more cycle friendly.

Why we cycle!

I cycle to reduce carbon emissions and pollution; for the chats that couldn’t happen from a car; & for free exercise built into my day.


I cycle because it’s a great way to get around the city and is so much better for me (and the environment!) than driving.


I like cycling to school because it’s faster and I can get there by myself.



I cycle because for me it is the easiest way to get around the city for both work and leisure. It allows me to go where I want, when I want, faster than walking and none of the hassle of driving.


I love cycling – it saves my family about €5,000 annually and is the best way to reduce my climate impact.



As a student I love to cycle because it is free exercise and good for the environment! It makes me very happy to be outdoors!
