Bristol WNBR 2014

Saturday 7 June 2014

Sunny at the start, I thought we might have a reverse of last year and get wet at the end. But amazingly only a few drops of rain. Traffic seemed busier than ever though - more people need to ride bikes!

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.
