  • 20mph saves emissions, energy AND lives

    The 20mph debate rages on in Bristol, with murmurings of potential reversal, Bristol Cycle Campaign want to shed some facts on an important aspect – Energy and Emissions. We've even got a handy infographic. One controversial argument often heard is that a vehicle travelling at 20mph has higher fuel consumption and emissions than at 30mph. Whilst it is true that the gearing on most passenger cars means that traveling on an empty motorway at 20 instead

  • 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

  • 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

  • Joint Spatial Plan and Joint Transport Study - our response

    These two major strategic plans will shape some profound changes to our city and towns over the coming years. The four West of England councils (Bristol, South Gloucestershire, North Somerset, Bath & North East Somerset) together are working on a draft Joint Spatial Plan setting out how the area will accomodate 85,000 new homes and growth of 20%. The companion Joint Transport Study will shape how people travel, and whether we achieve the Bristol Cycle

  • Bristol Cycling Network

    Bristol Cycling Campaign has produced a concise strategy for cycling in Bristol. This sets out how we will achieve Space for Cycling. The strategy is affordable, maintaining current spending levels of £16 per head of population per year, and can be delivered in just 12 years for a total of £109m. We have mapped out the network of strategic routes shown here that connect every neighbourhood. These can also be seen in an innovative 'Top

  • 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.

  • 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 https://bristolcycling.org.uk/map

  • 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
