  • Are the Roads Getting Less Dangerous for Cyclists? Trends 2003-2015

    Important statistics have been published recently concerning road traffic incidents, and the resulting death and injuries, occurring in Bristol during 2015 (Bristol Emergency Hospital Admissions 2003 – 2015) Key facts for 2015: 71 pedestrians admitted to hospital following road traffic incidents, lowest number for 5 years and below the long-term yearly average of 78.

  • Bristol Council Corporate Strategy consultation 2017-2022 - good for cycling?

    Bristol Council has published the Corporate Strategy consultation 2017-2022. There are immensely hard choices to be made.

  • Bristol Bugbears - report things that can be improved

    The new Bristol City Council Bugbears site is going to be very useful. There is funding to make small improvements to cycling and walking facilities around the city. As the council says "Fixing small things can make a big difference - bugbears are the small irritating things that hinder your cycling and walking through Bristol. It could be roads that could be made safer, missing signage, overgrown paths, uneven surfaces, obstacles or potholes." This is not

  • Bike lanes 'one of the best investments into public health returns'

    It's not news in Bristol (or anywhere else) but here's more evidence from New York about the astonishing returns on investment in cycling [4,5]. The really astonishing thing is that in spite of overwhelming evidence [1] and sound policies [2,3], the necessary transformation in approach still seems so far away. We wonder if the new transport powers for the new 'Metro Mayor' can repeat lessons from London, or Leicester to get a step change in
