I think more residents would cycle if they felt safer on the roads. This is a bit of a chicken and egg dilemma, it has been proven that the more cyclists take to the road the safer the roads become. This is due in part to the higher volume of car drivers who are also cyclists, these car drivers tend to be more aware and considerate of cyclists.
We could introduce cycling support schemes in Louth which would combine basic cycle maintenance with off road safe cycle training and on road guided cycle rides. This would be available for all age groups.
