Cycling news from Bristol and beyond

Do you care about our air?

Clean Air for Bristol are asking drivers to turn their engines off when stopped to help improve air quality.

As we who cycle already know, leaving a vehicle’s engine on when stopped, or idling, causes air pollution which is especially bad for children and is avoidable.

If you have to drive and are stopped for a minute or more, think about the air we all breathe and switch off your engine.

Clean Air for Bristol are looking for volunteers to help spread this message to drivers around idling hotspots across the city.
