CycleBath, run by Adam Reynolds is getting quite a bit of prominence. The ‘killer stat’ for me is depicted in this pie-chart which we produced from his 2011 census data with a bit of rounding.
What a vision! Only 40% of people working in Bath needing to use motorised (mostly fossil fuelled) transport of any sort.
After some investment we would:
- save money for everyone (residents and council)
- reduce emissions
- reduce noise
- keep fitter.
In the City of London where there is gold standard investment in cycle infrastructure the majority of traffic on the roads is now people cycling.
I’m going to ask him for ‘Bath only’ stats and try to get an up-to-date position of where we are now and how far we are away from the vision.
