Here at Bristol Cycling, we love an infographic. Recently we have had a lot of emails from people asking if they can use the infographics we have produced. The short answer is an overwhelming YES! The only reason we put these together is so they will be shared. We don’t make any money from advertising, clicks or copyright, our primary purpose is to make Bristol better for cycling. We want our messages to be spread far and wide.
In order to facilitate this we thought it would be useful to provide a summary of some of the infographic work we have produced over recent years. PLEASE share/print/publish far as far and wide as you can. You can see them all here.

Induced traffic and traffic evaporation
In a response to the Callington Road bypass controversy we put together an infographic summarising the principles of induced traffic and traffic evaporation. The principle doesn’t just apply to cars, it is the same for all infrastructure. “Build and they will come”.
Energy of 20mph vs 30mph
Vehicles travelling around cities at 20mph use less energy and fuel that those travelling at 30mph. They also put less energy through the roads, tyres and brakes, producing fewer particulates and doing less damage to the road surface.

Bristol Cyclings CAZ consultation response

7 Reasons Einstein would support 20mph
Of course we don’t know what Einstein really thought of 20mph limits in urban areas, but we do know if you compare 20mph to 30mph from a mechanics point of view, slower speeds make a lot of sense. Original article here. High res here. Double sided here.
