Bristol Cycling Campaign - for a cycle-friendly city
Cycling - the transport choice for Bristol
Due to increased SPAM we have had to make membership moderated - we will try to respond to requests to join the group within a couple of days. This group is available to anyone - campaign members and non-members alike, subject to moderation by the administrator. Comments made on this group do not necessarily constitute Bristol Cycling Campaign thinking.
The life-blood of a city is its people. Fine architecture and green spaces count for nothing without people in the picture. We want Bristol to be the city that puts people first.
That means tackling Bristol's biggest environmental problem - the
proliferation of private motor vehicles. It is not possible for large
numbers of cars and people to share the same place. If our streets are
places for driving and parking, no-one will want to be there. Shopping is
a miserable experience if you have to dash across the road dodging the
cars. No-one wants to walk or cycle if they fear for their safety.
Bristol is a big busy place. People need to travel, but most people
can move easily and efficiently under their own power. Walking and cycling
are cheap, quick, quiet, and clean. People-power: you go where you like,
when you like, for as long as you like. Facilitate walking and cycling and
you give virtually everyone the freedom of the city.
Bristol has sometimes shown what can be done. Look at College Green and
the Bristol-Bath Railway Path. The challenge is to extend spaces like
these, to create a safe, attractive city. A city fit for people.
