Fine Gael TD for Meath East, Regina Doherty has, today (Monday), welcomed the new cycle lanes in Ashbourne after trying them out for the first time on Sunday morning (21st June).
Doherty stated “we set out on our bikes on Sunday morning at 9.30am to join the Bike Week Family 6km Cycle which was so brilliantly organised by Cllr Alan Tobin, Ashbourne Fire Brigade and Garda Aisling O’Connor.
“It was an absolutely fantastic way to finish off National Cycle Week and to give the new cycle lanes in Ashbourne a try. I have to say, they are a fantastic addition to our town; myself and my son, Ryan, felt very safe cycling on the roads on Sunday morning. “It is so important that our roads remain a safe place for all road users. I would encourage everyone to get on their bike and use our new cycle lanes as an alternative means of transport to and from Ashbourne town. Cycling is a fantastic way to keep the mind and body in shape.”
