Chris Lyttle MLA said: “As part of Bike Week, I would encourage the public to take up cycling. It is a great way to stay active, and will help reduce congestion in our town and cities.
“There must be greater support for cycling in Northern Ireland from the Executive. We have seen a massive growth in cycling in recent years, however there must be improvements in the infrastructure such as cycle lanes.
“I was pleased to see so many people take part in this bike ride from Stormont to the city centre. I hope to work closely with them at the Assembly to deliver better services for cyclists.”
