Bristol WNBR 2016
Saturday 4 June 2016
Another brilliant Bristol ride, with plenty of smiles. A great turnout on a warm but overcast day. We rode a different route to avoid other protests and road closures, so the city centre was extra busy.
Big thanks to all the amazing riders, the Full Moon for hosting us again, Batala Bristol for brilliant drumming (twice!), Andy's security team and my fellow organisers and stewards, especially Will.
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.
