Space for Cycling Bristol

Bristol needs Space for Cycling - and a Mayor and councillors committed to deliver it after the elections on 4th May. Help make it happen!

New stretch target

Over the summer Bristol is heaving with events and activities full of people who will want to know how Space for Cycling can help them, their families and their neighbourhoods.

We have willing volunteers, and a fantastic and positive message, but we need a stall with gazebo, flags and bunting to bring it all together. This will cost £600, and we've already got half of that.

Can you help us get the Space for Cycling message to everyone in Bristol?

Two thirds of Bristol people consider our streets unsafe for cycling. The city is congested and polluted.  With Council elections in May all candidates need to know that the majority of Bristolians want safer cycle infrastructure. And more white lines is NOT cycle infrastructure!!!

To make Bristol a place where everyone feels able to cycle we need a well promoted campaign for real 'Space for Cycling'. We want to make a loud clear demand for our Mayor and concillors to use the next four years to deliver lots of continuous protected cycle lanes, more cycle parking, and safer roads for cycling.

Help make this happen by donating now so that the following can happen:

  1. A beautiful, quick and simple website

  2. Vigorous social media activity

  3. Loads of lovely and eye catching bike plates, fliers, posters, stickers

  4. Teams of coffee and cake fuelled volunteers out leafleting cycle hotspots

  5. A 'Big Ride' through the centre of town in April

£2,000 is needed by 28 Feb, so all this can happen. Please pledge what you can to make sure that our voices are heard!

This will be Bristol Cycling Campaign's biggest push since our hugely influential 2013 Bristol Cycling Manifesto. We've got enough in the bank to fund half of what's needed, so effectively BCyC is going to match every pledge £ for £.
