LABOUR SENATOR IVANA Bacik is launching the Oireachtas Cyclists Group in Dublin today in a bid to get more TDs and Senators to cycle to work.
The all-party group is being launched this morning at Leinster House with the aim of promoting cycling and encouraging TDs and Senators to cycle to work more.
