Northern Ireland minister promised "cycling revolution"
Good news for Northern Ireland cyclists, it seems that their government is serious in improving cycling safety on their roads. Danny Kennedy who is Stormont’s minister for regional development promised a "cycling revolution" for Northern Ireland after a visit to Scandinavia to check at the cycling capitals of Copenhagen in Denmark and Malmo in Sweden.
In an interview by BBC he said, "We need to create an environment which invites people to walk and cycle as much as possible. That is my vision for Northern Ireland and I am committed to making it happen."
"It has been very impressive to see at first hand how 'normal' cycling is for the majority of the populations in these cities."
Northern Ireland will be the host of the first three stages of the Giro d'Italia that will took place in May.
