Space for Cycling Big Ride – join our fun ride with a serious message on Saturday 17 May 2014

Please join the Bristol Cycling Campaign on Saturday 17 May 2014 for the ‘Space for Cycling‘ Big Ride, which is a fun ride with a serious message, telling politicians we want streets that are safe and inviting for everyone to cycle.

Our event starts by Temple Meads, with people gathering from 11:30am for a midday start, and from 1pm there’ll be a short rally outside City Hall. We’ll be finished before 2pm. Signup for the ride here.

Enjoy being the first to ride along the new protected route along Clarence Road, the first section of the Promenade Route that will eventually go from Keynsham to Pill. We’ll then go over Prince Street Bridge, one of the busiest walking and cycling routes in the city, then through the centre where we desperately need space for cycling. We then circle James Barton, one of the most problematic roundabouts in the country, along Upper Maudlin St and Park Row for a celebratory slide freewheel down Park Street.
