Bristol WNBR 2013
Saturday 15 June 2013
A really rainy start, with the sun gloriously breaking through the clouds half way through the ride. You'll notice the change in the photos, when I switch from moody black and white to vibrant colour.
WHY WE'RE DOING THIS
We’re celebrating bikes and bodies. We want to show that cycling is fun.
But we also have a serious message - to highlight how vulnerable cyclists are on the roads. Our roads are still too dangerous for many people to even consider cycling, and far too many cyclists are killed on the roads each year.
Research found that 8 in 10 Bristol residents want better safety for people riding bikes, and 70% of residents want to see more investment in cycling. Improving cycling could make a difference to Bristol's health - only 1 in 3 people in Bristol take regular exercise, and 196 deaths in Bristol each year are attributable to air pollution.

Would you like more photos? - I'm looking for models.
