Working for a city where cycling is so easy, everyone does it
There are 18 million bike trips in Bristol in a year and 31% of people ride a bike once a month or more. 67p per mile is the saving to individuals and to the local economy, for every mile biked instead of driven – which works out at over £26 million a year for Bristol at current levels of cycling. 8 in 10 people want Bristol to be better for cycling.
Two thirds of people consider cycling too risky for them. They want protection from intimidating motor traffic. They know that sharing with pedestrians can be uncomfortable for both. The only proven way to open cycling for all is to provide a continuous and dedicated cycling network, to Triple A standards for All Ages and Abilities.
