Car Free Cycling Day 09 in Bristol

09/10/2009 14:55:26

Streets Alive organised one of the UK's largest car free days in Bristol Sat 19th September

We made one of Bristol's city centre streets come alive for the day on Sat. 19th September. This is part of the UK's In Town Without My Car Day events and is in conjunction with Bristol City Council. It is also part of Bristol's Cycling City initiative.

In addition to there being no cars for the day, an unusually relaxed atmosphere of the Corn Street area was created with Garden Lounges. Other interactive activities for the 5000 people to enjoy were:

  • Wacky Bikes for all ages
  • Creative arts and bunting making on cycling themes
  • Have-a-go bike trails for adults
  • Dr Bike maintenance
  • Street entertainment with the Ambling Band
  • Travel Information Stalls with local groups

Here you can see photos of the previous events in 2007 and 2008.
