Focus on cycling activity in three areas
In 2015/16 we focused on promoting cycling activity in Bristol’s three enterprise areas – Hengrove, Easton and Lawrence Hill and Lawrence Weston. Activities, events and projects aimed to support more people to cycle as a means to promote health, access work and skills and reduce car use.
Working with Registered Social Landlords
We developed a pilot programme in 2015/16 working with Registered Social Landlords (RSLs) and their tenants to increase sustainable transport opportunities for residents, primarily by improving or creating cycle parking at their properties, but also promoting Wheels to Work and other support services, and linking residents to active travel opportunities. Match funding was available for our project partners. Read more
Active Neighbourhood Transport Grants
We have supported more than 70 community projects across the city over the past two years. In 2015/16 we continued to manage approximately ten of these projects with continuation funding.
View case studies
We have provided comprehensive bike tool kits, including track pumps, to nearly 40 community centre, which are for use by their visitors and members of the public. Their locations are listed online at Better By Bike If there is sufficient interest, we can arrange for bike maintenance training courses for any staff members who are responsible for these kits
