DLR CoCo Blackrock cycle route

In the 2012, the Council developed a County Cycle Network,
following an assessment of all existing routes in the County.
The main objectives of this assessment were:
> To identify and implement safe cycling routes to key
destinations in the County.
> To retrofit areas towards creating sustainable
neighbourhoods so that cycling, together with walking,
can be the best option for local trips.
> To help prioritise funding to deliver cost effective cycle
friendly improvements to the cycle network in the County.
The aim of the improved cycle network was to create
conditions to encourage and facilitate increased levels of
cycling in the County by providing direct routes with a high
level of service. This leaflet provides details of one route being
enhanced as part of the County Cycle Network. Details of all
routes can be found on www.dlrcoco.ie under Cycling.
