Becoming a Cycling City

Between June 2008 and March 2011 Bristol and South Gloucestershire Councils embarked on a major project to get thousands more people back on their bikes.

A number of projects helped bring about this transport revolution:

  • building new and improved cycling infrastructure
  • running fun and exciting events
  • providing people with help and support through training, working with businesses, schools and community projects
  • raising awareness of the reasons to cycle and how to get started

The menu links on the left gives lots more information, including links to movies of new routes and cycle paths.


What’s next?

Greater Bristol’s Cycling City status continues into the future through the West of England’s share of the Local Sustainable Transport Fund.

This Department for Transport fund allows Bristol and South Gloucestershire councils to work with neighbouring North Somerset Council and Bath & North East Somerset Council to encourage lots more cycling, along with the use of more sustainable transport in general.
