Formerly known as Bike Life, this is the UK's biggest ever study of walking, wheeling and cycling.
Every year, walking and cycling in Bristol results in:
I’d love to see a big improvement in the environment for
pedestrians in Westbury-on-Trym, which would mean wider,
better pavements, getting rid of obstructions and so on.
We know that if something is improved for disabled
accessibility, it generally improves things for everyone.
Improving maintenance of footways and replacing cracked paving slabs removes trip hazards, and shifting sign posts to reduce the number of obstructions on the footway – there have to be better solutions.
In Bristol, more than a thousand people were surveyed to explore their attitudes towards walking and cycling in their city.
The data was collected between June 2021 and August 2021 and shows data on walking for the first time.
The index shows that in Bristol, 57% of residents walk at least five days a week.
This compares to just 25% who drive.
A further 10% cycle and 6% use public transport, making walking, wheeling and cycling the most used forms of transport.
