Who are we?

Cycling Solutions Ireland is the only Cycle-Friendly Employer licence-holder in Ireland. We work with employers, campuses and organisations to make their workplaces cycling friendly and encourage employees to cycle to work.

We use the European Cyclists’ Federation’s EU-wide framework for cycling friendliness which covers everything from physical infrastructure to cultural strategies and everything in between.

Cycle-Friendly Employer certification starts with an online evaluation and ends with an on-site audit, we don’t rely on self-assessment. Instead, we work closely with you to make an action plan to improve the cycling experience and gain the right accreditation for your organisation.
