Becoming a Cycling City - 2008-2011

Cycling in queen square

Between June 2008 and March 2011, Bristol and South Gloucestershire Councils embarked on a major project to get thousands of 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.
