  • A Modest Proposal #1: Pedestrianise Clifton Triangle +

    One of the next actions as part of our Freedom to Ride campaign is to start to flesh out our proposed Bristol Cycling Network that we are working on with Bristol City Council. We are looking at some specific issues and routes that need addressing in order to generate debate and come up with some plans that can be progressed with the Council so that we have initial plans for as and when further funding Read More
  • A Modest Proposal #4: Clanage Road Roundabout and the Festival Way +

    If you want to scare yourself rigid, pop along to Clanage Road roundabout on any weekday in term time at 3.15pm. That's the time that 1,500 kids pour out of Ashton Park School and onto the fast busy roundabout on the A369. This is a key hub on the F11 Inner Orbital Cycling Freeway in the BCyC strategic cycle network and close to F8 Festival Way Quietway. BCyC members have been working with local residents Read More
  • A Modest Proposal #2: Bristol Promenades Routes +

    We've been given agreement to share with you some plans that we have been helping with for Promenade Routes in Bristol. These are a set of proposals by John Grimshaw to enhance all of Bristol’s waterside quays, towpaths and walkways to create popular promenades to further promote walking and cycling in the area. Bristol’s riversides and docks have long been a popular place to cycle because they are attractive, central and flat. This project aims Read More
  • A Modest Proposal #6; Eight to Eighty cycling on Gloucester Road +

    Did you know that Gloucester Road was one of Bristol’s busiest cycle routes? What’s more, the number of people cycling has doubled in the last ten years whereas motor vehicle numbers have dropped by a fifth. These facts can be seen from Department for Transport Traffic Counts. So what does this tell us? Bristol’s Cycling City money has been well spent? Not quite. Significant Cycling City money was not spent on Gloucester Road infrastructure as Read More
  • A Modest Proposal #5: The Bear Pit / St James Barton Roundabout +

    St James Barton roundabout remains among the worst in Bristol for cyclists. This is despite the sterling work of The Bearpit Improvement Group and the recently completed £1million scheme to provde a route around the inner edge of the roundabout at street level for pedestrians and cyclists. We hope this already outdated scheme will be the last time huge budgets will be spent forcing cycles to share busy spaces with pedestrians (see BCyC Policy on Read More
  • South Gloucestershire Draft Cycle Strategy - our response +

    A lot of useful work has gone in to this draft strategy which follows on from the publication last year of the Bristol Cycle Strategy. As with all general plans and statements of intent they are likely to have only a slight influence on what actually happens, but they are absolutely necessary and important to get right as they make certain outcomes more likely than others. Read our full response here: 2016-01-15SouthGloucestershireCyclingStrategy. Ref: Draft Version Read More
  • A Modest Proposal #3: Inner Loop Proposal +

    The Bristol Cycling Campaign is putting together a proposal to City Hall for a segregated loop around the city centre. The Inner Loop Cycleway will link the new and established radial routes and help cyclists safely negotiate the ‘tarmac collar’ of the city’s motor traffic dominated Inner Ring Road. The proposed route will be designed to the Dutch standard, sections of it already exist through earlier developments. What follows is a summary of our proposal. Read More
  • Top Tube map launched +

    As part of the Freedom to Ride: Bristol Cycling Manifesto we have produced a dramatic graphic to show how our strategic cycling network will reach into every area of Bristol. It will allow truly connected and comfortable movement around the city by bike. We are working hard to get the councils in the area to commit to delivering this over the next 12 years. You can see details of the proposed routes here http://bristolcycling.org.uk/map   Read More
