Vote for Castlebar's Smartest Mover 2010
European Mobility Week is upon us again. It takes place from 16 - 22 September. The theme for 2010 is 'Travel Smarter, Live Better'. Towns and cities accross Europe will be organising events and initiatives to promote the use of public transport, cycling and walking. Castlebar is participating in this for the second year in a row, thanks to Iompar Castlebar, a group set up in 2009 to promote sustainable travel in the town. This year there are a range of events and initiatives in the pipeline for the week and to set the ball rolling we are launching the competition to identify 'Castlebar's Smartest Mover 2010'. Last year, this competition was won by Anne Garavan, who has been a pioneer and champion of cycling around the town for many years now.

Thérèse Ruane, Chairperson of Iompar Castlebar said:

"Iompar Castlebar is going from strength to strengh and we're really seeing the results of our work over the past year. Castlebar is slowly but surely becoming a more cycle and pedestrian friendly town. Now, that EU Mobility Week is upon us again, we're looking forward to another successful 'Live Better, Travel Smarter' week and hope that the people of Castlebar will get behind the wide range of events and initiatives in the pipeline for the week. Keep an eye out in the coming weeks for a list of events and come along and get involved."

"Castlebar's Smartest Mover was a really popular competition last year and we hope to continue to run this on an annual basis. Anne Garavan, I must say, was a wonderful ambassador last year; she took part and spoke at events throughout the year to promote cycling and walking in Castlebar. It's now time to hand over the reins and vote in someone new, someone who walks, cycles, uses public transport, car-pools and plays a vital role in promoting sustainable transport."
