Latest Laois Event: Portarlington Mass Cycle Event

Critical Mass Cycle Event Portarlington 30th April

Statement from Portarlington Sustainable Energy Community group

“Do you want safe cycling for all ages and abilities in Portarlington? Then join us for a 7km fun, safe and family friendly cycle around Portarlington town centre.

People of all ages and abilities should have the opportunity to safely cycle in their town. This event aims to promote safe cycling for all while having fun for all the family at the same time. 

We are calling on Laois and Offaly County Councils to improve cycle infrastructure for all, including;

  1. Safe segregated cycle lanes throughout the town centre
  2. 30kmh speed limits for zones where segregated lanes are not feasible
  3. Traffic calming measures to make the town safer for all road users

Start and Finish point is at the rear (Lough Gate) entrance to Solas at 2pm on Saturday 30th April and the 7km route will take in the primary town centre roads and streets.
