Britain's first Cycling City
In 2008 Greater Bristol was chosen as England's first Cycling City and received £11m from the Department for Transport to transform cycling.
This helped bring about a strong cycling renaissance in the city. New dedicated on-road cycle lanes, new traffic-free routes, 1500 new cycle parking stands as well as cycling training and lots other 'softer measures' projects encouraged thousands more people to saddle up.
What's happening now?
You'll find information about all the new Cycling City cycle paths and projects at: http://www.betterbybike.info/cycling-city
Lots of communities in Bristol are continuing to take to their bikes in support of the project and we're seeing some fantastic increases in cycling levels.
