Connecting Places Mini Series: Bicycling Belfast: Part 2: An International Perspective

In this series, Connecting Places, we explore the spaces, places and sustainable transport systems in Belfast and beyond, with an aim to generate critical debate on the design of our towns and cities.
Series curated by Aaron Coulter

Part 2: An International Perspective

Broadly speaking, cycling cities can be split into two categories - ‘traditional’ cycling cities such as Copenhagen and Amsterdam and then those who have recently taken up the challenge to improve cycling conditions such as New York, London and Dublin (among many others). In this article we will be asking ‘What can Belfast learn from these cities?’

Secret Laboratory opening in Dublin - Tues 31st Jan

An exhibition which began its life at PLACE has been travelling all over Ireland in the past number of years. The Secret Laboratory explores the hidden world of architects' sketchbooks, featuring the ideas, observations, thoughts and reflections of Grafton Architects, Ciaran Mackel, McCullough Mulvin, Jane Larmour, Sheila O'Donnell, and more.

The Secret Laboratory was created by Paul Clarke, an architect and writer based in the School of Architecture and Design at the University of Ulster.

The exhibition launches at Wood Quay offices on Tues 31st January at 5pm. It continues from the 31st Jan - 17th Feb, Monday - Friday from 9am - 5pm.

Save Dublin's Cycle Officer

It was announced last week that Dublin is set to lose its Cycling Officer, Ciaran Fallon. He is currently the only Cycling Officer in any of the City Councils in Ireland. This position played a key role in promoting cycling in the city, just recently voted 9th most bike friendly city in the world by Copenhagenize (Irish Times, September 2011). If the post is lost it will be a devastating blow for cycling in Dublin. But it could also set a trend for decision makers in Northern Ireland.

There's an online petition which can let you show your support for improving cycling in Dublin and beyond.
