Three Bristol schemes listed as examples of high quality infrastructure

There's a consultation out on behalf of the Department for Transport to compile a set of Case Studies that exemplify high quality, high performing cycle infrastructure in the UK. The short list of 35 schemes provide variety of scheme types (in both urban and rural areas), and illustrate cycle designs for different situations. There is an online survey until 16th August to narrow this to a final selection by commenting on chemes with which people are familiar.

http://www.smartsurvey.co.uk/s/HighQualityCycleInfrastructure_RM5156/

The next stage of the project will involve collecting more detailed data on the final selection from their promoters, with DfT planning to publish a selection of case studies on its website in Autumn 2015.
 
The three local schemes are
  • South West England: Bristol - Redcliffe Bridge and Welsh Back

One of our members has made the following responses stating that all three are 'Satisfactory, but...'  What do you think? Chip in on Facebook or Twitter.

South Gloucestershire - Hambrook Junction on A4174, parallel signalled cycle crossing

Compared to much of the other provision through South Gloucestershire this is not bad. It does help get across a major obstacle to cycling but it can hardly be called welcoming and is not going to make those who don't cycle feel they are safe and welcome particularly on the approaches.

Bristol - Baldwin Street Two Way Segregated Cycle Track

This is a short length of really quite attractive provision, including a well thought out priority crossing of a fairly busy side street. The question is where it comes from and is going. The junction at the top by Castle Park is congested, confusing and unable to cope with existing demand. At the other end you are dumped into bewildering routes around the centre. Net effect is marginal at best. Then there is the issue that the long term strategy for the city centre must be for a 'Living Heart' free of motor traffic, in which case Baldwin Street may well not need special provision at all. Looks like tokenism in the absence of strategy, but if you think that all that's needed is a few metres of good stuff then you might be pleased with this.

Bristol - Redcliffe Bridge and Welsh Back

This was done as a quick and cheap scheme during the Cycling City project and it was the only example where a short stretch of road was reallocated as Space for Cycling. It's not pretty and already feel congested and it does little to clarify the heavily used shared use paths and pavements through to Queens Square and beyond or on through to Temple Meads Station. Is it better than what was there before? Yes. It is a example of Triple A cycling provision (All Ages and Abilities) that will encourage more people to cycle feeling safe and comfortable? Only if your standards are low and you're feeling charitable.

Princes Street Bridge closed to cars

Well, at least for 6 months whilst the bridge is being refurbished from mid-August. 

This will be a practical test of filtered permeability in the centre as a temporary scaffolding bridge is being put up for pedestrians and cyclists. It's only 3m wide however so probably only suitable for walking with bikes.

Now this is a chance to see the effect of closing the bridge to general traffic. Will Bristol grind to a halt? We very much doubt it.

We will be pressing for this to be a evaluated for a permanent measure. Just the kind of thing that should have been planned as part of Green Capital and disappointing that we're only now hearing about it, and as a temporary measure.

Bristol's Bike Film Festival, Cyclescreen, returns this August

We’re excited about the return of Bristol's Bike Film Festival, Cyclescreen, to the Watershed from Thursday 20 to Sunday 23 August. Now in its second year, the festival will celebrate the social and environmental benefits of the beloved bicycle for the people of Britain. And it’ll explore the part Bristol and the southwest has played in Britain’s cycling evolution through the founding of the national cycle network.

The programme has something for everyone, with documentaries and talks exploring cycling’s history, its sporting dramas, its inspirational women, its affinity with adventure and creativity.

Films and talks with Bristol connections:

Bicycle: A Great British Movement (Thu 20 Aug 18:00)
A documentary exploring cycling in the UK from its birth in the Victorian era to today’s boom, with a look at the success of the Bristol to Bath railway path. Bicycle will be followed by a Q&A with Sustrans Founder John Grimshaw, Sustrans Regional Director for the South West Ian Barrett and cycling advocate and Executive Chairman of Aardman Animations, David Sproxton.

Dummy Jim (Sun 23 Aug 17:00)
A recreation of deaf James Duthie’s journey from Scotland to the Arctic Circle and back starring Bristolian deaf actor and filmmaker Samuel Dore.

The Printing Bike Project (Sun 23 Aug 13:00)
The story of Nick Hand of Bristol’s the Letterpress Collective and Robin Mather of the Bicycle Academy riding their custom-made bicycle to Mainz in Germany, the spiritual home of the printing press, and carrying out their trade along the way.

Also particularly recommended:

Who is Dervla Murphy? + Come on Eileen (Thu 20 Aug 20:30)
A double bill featuring the hugely inspiring travel writer and explorer Dervla Murphy and a first-hand account of pro-cyclist Eileen Sheridan’s remarkable story, including her epic journey from Land’s End to John O’Groats and on to take the 1,000 mile record that stood for 48 years.

2015 AGM with Carlton Reid

This year's AGM was so packed with updates and future plans we ended up overrunning and had to ask Carlton to wrap things up rather quickly!

Before Carlton treated us to a preview of his upcoming book, discussions were had around our development and how we can further influence change in the city. The revival of Space for Cycling this year will take us into the mayoral and full council elections in 2016. We need to put inspiration generated by our Top Tube map to action on the ground. This means getting more involved in Neighbourhood Partnerships to influence local decision making and moving forward with Road Justice.

We continue to work closely with our partners especially in our response to consultations. We are planning a study tour in the Netherlands on 23-25 September to which are inviting council officers along with anyone keen to see how things are done in cycling 'Nirvana'. However we still need to work more closely with other partners such as public transport providers and environmental groups. Our consultation responses now use a traffic light format to make them quicker and easier to understand.

Our communications need to be more effective, including setting up an events team to communicate directly with the public. There was some consensus to say that we have lost something by no longer having a paper magazine. Any ideas on how we might revive some form of printed messaging would be appreciated.

Our Road Justice campaign continues, as Rob Harding described: however we are slowly slipping down the Police's priority list and things are not getting done. Road Justice needs to be enforced. Recent statistics showed in Bristol 128 cyclists annually are admitted to hospital needing treatment including 17 due to 'dooring'. An FoI request showed only 10 people were prosecuted as a result. Mark Brough and Sam Saunders continue to work on the statistics to help push things at Neighbourhood Partnership level. A brief discussion ensued from the question: should we continue to use reasoned argument or more radical means? We need to hear from people involved in incidents with the Bristol Cyclists Facebook group being a good source of news. We also still need a system for taking action based on near-miss incident reporting statistics (which is about to go live). Is this something the Campaign could do by adding a page on our website?

The Metrobust campaign has been involved in detailed consultation with the council, having identified a possible bus/cycle conflict at the Create Centre. Plans for lighting have been removed from large sections of the Metrobus route, which degrades the cycling facilities alongside. The Centre (by the fountains) is to be redesigned extensively, but no-one is sure which agency is actually leading on this, so consultation is proving difficult. There has been success with saving the footway on Bedminster Parade, but overall there is a perception of indifference for needs of cycling on behalf of the Metrobus scheme. We're hoping to get the deputy mayor for transport to give more resource to council officers to help implement cycling improvements within big schemes.

Chris Whitlock gave a detailed presentation on our Rides programme, which over the last year has been given a boost with help from the council's Active Neighbourhood Transport Grant. In February 2014, we applied for the grant to run rides to actively encourage novice and irregular cyclists and to make greater use of social media and websites (such as Better By Bike) to publicise the rides. By May 2014 the grant was approved and funds of £1,410 were received on condition we started monitoring our rides.

Therefore over the one year period of the grant the £1,410 was used as follows:

- £270 on regular leafleting

- £585 on Ride leader training

- £320 on design work for promotional material

- £172 on Ride leader equipment and clothing (e.g. high viz jackets, first aid kits)

- £63 on extra printing and prizes for family event

Rides were length divided between short urban 'themed' rides (interesting and informative, but also sociable and entertaining) graded 'Easy', at a gentle pace and very inclusive, making them appealing to those who may not otherwise consider cycling; medium rural rides (out-of-town rides of medium grade and length) designed to provide cycling in good company, exploring attractive rural routes; and long 'challenge' ride (full day rides for experienced cyclists or for those seeking a more challenging ride).

The grant has allowed us to produce a monthly rides poster distributed to 84 sites around the City by a team of a dozen volunteers and we received extra publicity this year via a Guardian cycling supplement. For the coming year we're working on a bright new poster to promote our Rides programme. The grant also funded a Ride Leader training day to improve the comfort, safety and enjoyment of our rides. Hence ten people were invited to a comprehensive full day of training given by Lifecycle UK and Ride Leader packs were provided for those who have taken an active role in the last year.

Analysis of the statistics produced some predictable and some encouraging results.

- rides attendance is 70/30 ratio of men to women

- 77% are attendees are in the 31 to 60 age range

- 35% are in the 51 to 60 age range

- 22% come from BS3 (Bedminster/Ashton/Southville)

- 13% come from BS7 (Bishopston/Horfield/Lockleaze)

- 13% come from BS4 (Brislington/Knowle/St Annes)

- 10% come from BS6 (Cotham/Redland/St Andrews)

So are our rides encouraging people to cycle more?  Our stats show 65% of attendees confirmed the event will encourage them to cycle more, with many of those ticking "No" commenting cycling was already their main form of transport. More on Chris's presentation here (opens a pdf).

Finally, nominations to the committee were: Eric Booth, Andrew Gough, Terry Miller, Penny Partridge, Martin Tweddell, Chris Whitlock, Benn Woodward, proposed by Rob Harding, seconded by Martin Tweddell and the vote to re-elect them was unanimous. Their roles will be determined at future meetings (please see About Us)

Carlton Reid's presentation was fascinating and informative. His earlier book Roads Were Not Built For Cars sold out extremely quickly and also did very well in US and he hopes his latest work in progress, Bike Boom, about resurgence of cycling since the 1970s will do just as well.

However before talking about Bike Boom, Carlton reminded us of some key points from Roads Were Not Built For Cars which, of course, forms the context for the 1970s resurgence. In the 1890s across the US and Europe it was cyclists who created roads and it was only when the automobile was invented that the same innovators then moved on to create motoring. These innovators led the way for road improvements in the 1880s when also the first segregated cycle lane appeared in Utrecht (Netherlands) for high wheeled cycling. In 1900 the US 'Sidepaths' movement came into being to promote high quality segregated routes. By the 1930s the UK had 600 miles of cycle paths, but these were badly designed and maintained which led to the CTC's stance at the time to keep cycling on the roads with general traffic. Meanwhile since the 1880s the Netherlands had got good at 'canalising' (segregating) traffic streams.

So cycling was off the political radar between WW1 and 1970. The town of Davis, California, started installing paths in 1960s and this continues today, helped by the fact it has a large student population. Meanwhile back in the UK the Buchanan report was published, which though full of warnings about car domination, only the auto-centric recommendations were cherry picked by government. Stevenage became the exception, with a 'phenomenal' system, but no cyclists! This confirmed that a healthy cycling culture is not just about infrastructure. Amazingly the Dutch were coming to Stevenage in the '70s to see how WE did things. The resurgence of cycling only happened where politicians allowed it, such as in the Netherlands after the fuel crisis and Stop de Kindermoord campaign in the early '70s. (The Netherlands wasn't always cycling utopia, as photos of Dutch streets from the 1950s & '60s show, with cars dominating city streets). By the end of the 1970s and into the 1980s the UK needed campaigns such as Cyclebag (which evolved into Sustrans) to push for better cycling provision, which continues to this day.

We'll have to wait for the publication of Bike Boom to see what conclusions Carlton reaches, about where this boom is going and warnings for the future of cycling if we don't take the right path.

Cycle Festival 2015 roundup

The second week of June saw another packed week of events for the Bristol Cycle Festival – the celebration of all things cycling back for a successful 6th year. Highlights included a series of Discover Bristol rides led by members of the Cycling Campaign, attracting an average of 20 people - the ever-popular Banksy Ride being somewhat over subscribed with 45 riders.

The main part of the Festival was rounded off in traditional fashion on Sunday with the Carnivelo ride, this year with a green twist: Naturevelo, coinciding as it did with Big Green Week and the Festival of Nature. Taking advantage of the Portway Sunday Park, riders of all ages with bicycles adorned with flowers, bees and butterflies enjoyed a spectacular traffic-free ride under the Suspension Bridge and out to the Bennett’s Patch and White’s Paddock nature reserve alongside the Portway. Over tea and cake, a series of prizes were awarded for the best costumes

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

and bike decorations, including medals for the Campaign's own Ronnie, William and Martin in striking floral head dresses – a proud moment!

It's not over yet. There are still more Festival events to come – check the programme for details : http://bristolcyclefestival.com/programme/

Cycle Sunday - call to action

The next Cycle Sunday event on the Downs is now taking place on Sunday 12 July.  The organisers need volunteer stewards and are looking for people to do a range of things from roaming the route by bike, counting arrivals (think deckchair and flask of coffee) and helping out at the HQ (small gazebo and a flag!) The last event was so positive, with an amazing community atmosphere, so they're hoping that people involved in cycle campaigning in Bristol would find it a real tonic to help out at the event. Get in touch through the Facebook group or website.

Most importantly, although it seems to the participants to be just a ride in the park, it is actually a very strong demonstration to the Downs Committee - and one that they can't ignore... The event timing is 9am - 12pm (although the actual road closure will be 8am - 1pm).

Note that you can now register your interest for the next Cycle Sunday on 12th July.

You might enjoy the film of the first event:

Bristol's Biggest Bike Ride Routes

Bristol's Biggest Bike RideWe'll be joining the thousands of people out on Skyride on Sunday 21nd June. It's sure to be a great event, and one to treasure along with the Bristol Grand Prix on Saturday 20st. Both coming hot on the heals of another buzzing Bristol Cycle Festival. For those wanting more than the 7.5km short route, here's the information about the four routes from previous years. You get to enjoy all the fun of the Skyride at the start (and end if you wish), but can extend it to appreciate the whole of the the Portway Sunday Park a make a day of enjoying our lovely city and its surroundings.

Family Fiesta - 9 mile route along the Portway, under the Suspension Bridge and looping back to the centre

Avon Gorge - 14 mile route takes you over the Avonmouth Bridge to loop back to the city through Pill and Leigh Woods 

Portishead - 24 mile route to the North Somerset coast 

Clevedon - 38 mile trip with hilly climbs and steep descents

We've now got a webpage with all four routes and you can even download the GPX files if you wish.

Is Bristol the UK's most active city?

Bristol featured as the most active city in the UK in a new report, Active Cities - a guide for city leaders. Nine cities around the world were compared and common themes and lessons drawn out. The report, sponsored by Nike, is a useful summary of the issues and evidence and deserves to be widely used. It seems that active cities typically do four things really well. 1) They make physical activity a priority, 2) Use existing resources, 3) Design for people and 4) Create a legacy of lasting change. News article here.

On a related theme UWE is starting a research project called cycle BOOM to understand cycling among the older population and how this affects independence, health and wellbeing. See the press coverage here. The ultimate aim is to advise policy makers and practitioners how our environment and technologies can be designed to help people to continue to cycle in older age or to reconnect with cycling. They are looking for participants in Bristol, Oxford, Reading and Cardiff who are over 50.

Some of the points from the Active Cities report include:

Walking is great for business and so is cycling
Multiple studies have shown that making places better for walking can boost footfall and trading by up to 40 percent and raise retail rents by 20 percent. Projects in the United Kingdom were shown to increase employment and the number of visitors - each by 300 percent. A conservative estimate of the annual economic impact of cycling in one metropolitan area was $60 million. The annual economic impact of cyclists is almost nine times as much as the one-time expenditure of public funds used to construct special bicycle facilities. Among 20 different studies on the economic benefits of walking and bicycling interventions, the average benefit-to-cost ratio was 13:1. Read this interesting article from CityLab collating 12 different reports.

People like their cities more when they have active transport options
Ciclovias (cycling events that close streets to cars for a full day like Bristol's Biggest Bike Ride) are great community builders. In fact, nearly 9 out of 10 people agree that the events cause them to look more favorably on their city.Public transport options also impact how people feel about their cities. One survey found that half of residents who lack access to mass transit are dissatisfied with the lack of availability.

Walkability and bike ability drastically reduce driving and related pollutants
In one study, a 5 percent increase in walkability was associated with a 6.5 percent decrease in vehicle miles traveled. This equates to a 5.6 percent decrease in emissions of oxides of nitrogen.In a study of a county in the United States, it was determined that the addition of sidewalks to all roadways would lead to a reduction of vehicle miles traveled equal to 183 million miles, resulting in an annual air pollution cost saving of $8 million.

Cycling facilities lower health care costs
A modeling study of Portland, Oregon (USA) estimated that by 2040, investments in bike facilities (costing from $138 to $605 million) will result in health care cost savings of $388 million to $594 million, fuel savings of $143 million to $218 million, and savings in the value of statistical lives of $7 million to $12 billion. 

It's what people want
It turns out that people want to live in cities that are walkable, bikeable and playable. From the surveys and consumer research available, it appears the public is already very much in favor of activity-friendly options. For example: 

  • Many people are “mismatched” and do not live in their preferred neighborhood type—specifically, people who do not live in walkable neighborhoods would prefer to.

  • Nine of ten people prefer that more local government funds be devoted to walking/jogging trails, recreation centers and bike paths.

  • If bicycling were made safer from motor vehicle traffic, bicycle riding at least once per week could increase from 8 percent to 40 percent of adults.

  • In the United States, 59 percent of people surveyed support walkable communities.

  • More than half of Americans prefer neighborhoods that are close to shops, have a mix of incomes and provides public transportation.

Call to S. Glos Council to stop putting advertising signs on roundabouts

There's a petition set up calling on South Gloucestershire council to stop putting distracting advertising signs on roundabouts. These are some of the more dangerous junctions for cycling and those in S. Glos tend to be large and fast making them even more intimidating.  

We support this petition and suggest that you might want to show your support as well.  

Here's the useful explanation:

South Gloucestershire Council is increasing the risk of accidents, particularly for cyclists, by putting advertising signs on roundabouts. This petition asks South Gloucestershire Council not to renew existing agreements and to refuse future applications for advertising signs on roundabouts.

Advertisements by their very nature are designed to distract, and distracted drivers cause accidents, so why is the local authority charged with improving road safety sacrificing their principles for advertising revenue? What price a life?

As noted by RosPA in their report – ‘Cycling Accidents Facts & Figures - August 2014’

“Roundabouts are particularly dangerous junctions for cyclists.”

The DFT Consultation on the draft Traffic Signs Regulations and General Directions 2015 acknowledges this;

“3.2 Over-provision of signs can have a detrimental impact on the environment and can dilute important messages. If they result in information overload for drivers they can contribute to driver distraction, which can have an impact on road safety.”

Writing on the Road Safety Knowledge Centre website on the 21st December 2011 Ms M Whitelock of South Gloucestershire Council wrote:

Roundabout Advertising

"We have never had an accident report that said the driver was distracted by the advertising on the roundabout - I guess that doesn't mean there hasn't been one just not one that has been recorded as such. "

Thus the council doesn’t know if an accident has been caused by their signs but is willing to take a chance with our lives, surely an irresponsible attitude.

The danger of advertising signs is highlighted in the TOWN AND COUNTRY PLANNING (CONTROL OF ADVERTISEMENTS) (ENGLAND) REGULATIONS 2007
”General considerations
1. All advertisements are intended to attract attention. But particular consideration should be given to proposals to site advertisements at points where drivers need to take more care, for instance at junctions, roundabouts, pedestrian  crossings, on the approach to a low bridge or level crossing, or other places where local conditions present traffic hazards.”

The 3rd International Conference on Driver Distraction and Inattention

also draws attention to the dangers and concludes;

“The overall results of the empirical studies show that advertising signs do
affect driver attention to the extent that road safety is compromised.”

And

“The signs are placed with the purpose of capturing drivers' visual attention. Every time the drivers' visual attention is distracted away from the road and towards competing advertising signs, the time available for the drivers' response to avoid a crash if something unexpected occurs is reduced.”

PLEASE SUPPORT THIS PETITION

 

CycleBath - campaigning in BANES

CycleBathWe're really impressed by what CycleBath are doing at the moment. They're very active in setting out a vision and in holding Bath and North East Somerset Council to account for what's being delivered on the ground. In particular their work with the Cycle City Ambition Grant projects is both constructive and critical, essential elements in campaigning.

We'll be looking to what we can learn from them about applying a Cycle Route Audit Tool to our Strategic Cycle Network.

They've been getting good coverage in the local media as well.

Keep pushing, CycleBath!
