We are meeting in Massimo this Friday.
We have chosen Massimo as the venue this time round because there is more space there.
Anyone with an interest in cycling is welcome. It's a good opportunity to meet like-minded people while enjoying a pint and some nice food after work on a Friday.
There is funding available to organise Bike Week events so that's going to be a topic for discussion. read full story / add a comment

Radical Routes begin an all-island speaking tour at the end of this month to people to set up their own co-ops. They are presenting this as a way out of both the precarious rental market and the trap of long-term mortgage debt.
The tour will draw on their experience where the Radical Routes network has over 35 member co-ops. They say that "While the legal and financial structures relevant to setting up a co-op are different in the UK and Ireland, the experience learned from establishing these projects in the UK is valuable to anyone in Ireland considering setting up a co-operative and taking control of their own housing situation."
16:30-17:30, Saturday 1st Nov, Galway Bay Hotel, Galway. -The latter time is to accomodate Water Charges protest. read full story / add a comment
