We’re making Bristol better for cycling. We speak up for cycling locally, city-wide, and nationally. We lobby. We get involved in consultations. We promote the evidence. We call out the failures.

Making Bristol better for cycling requires lots of effort at local level by people who know and care about their neighbourhoods and the small changes that can make a big difference. We’re working to establish a voice for cycling in every neighbourhood. This will involve developing a cycling plan as part of a Neighbourhood Sustainable Travel Plan (to include walking and public transport). We will then use this to influence local councillors and Neighbourhood Partnerships and build movements for change. Please get in touch if you are able to help and see our useful information for local campaigns.
