Responding to consultations is an important part of what we do. There’s an active group pressing for Triple A quality (All Ages and Abilities) and for capacity that will encourage more people to cycle, and plan for the projected levels of 20% within 10 years.

  • Safe Cycling in NW Bristol ? Yes please

    Safe Cycling in NW Bristol ? Yes please

    Want to cycle from Clifton to Henbury along a safe segregated cycle route? No we're not joking; we don't mean messy, sub standard national cycle route 4 but a new route along Westbury Rd, Falcondale Rd and Passage Rd, protected from motors. There is currently a consultation on new bus lanes on the A4018, which don't seem popular locally. It's not ambitious on cycling either; a new route on the Downs and, perhaps, traffic reduction

  • Our response to the 20mph consultation

    Our response to the 20mph consultation

    20mph speed limits on most streets and roads in Bristol has been one of Bristol Cycling's campaigns (Twenty's Plenty) from the beginning. We encouraged as many BCyC members as possible to respond to the consultation in 2018 (7 Reasons Einstein would support 20 mph) and we were pleased at the overwhelmingly positive response the council received. We put in our own formal submission as well, as below or click here Response to 20mph consultation 2018.

  • Bristol consulting on 20 mph speed limit

    Bristol consulting on 20 mph speed limit

    Bristol are consulting on 20 mph speed limits in the city (20mph Limits Review). We believe the city-wide 'Total Twenty' approach has been good for walking and cycling, and the evidence supports this. We're concerned that the review seems to be wholly focussed on reversing this and allowing 30mph on many roads. There is almost no mention of eduction or enforcement measures to embed the change. We're asking everyone to respond to the review. There

    Proposals for Coronation Rd - Dean Lane crossing

    Draft plans have been circulated for this is very important and heavily used route for walking and cycling at the south end of Gaol Ferry Bridge (plan). The current arrangement is most unsatisfactory and long overdue for improvement. This has come to top of the pile as Bristol Council tries to find deliverable schemes as the Cycling Ambition Fund completion deadline approaches in 2018. The CAF team have increasingly struggled to get through projects that
