Sea Mills Scouts & Cubs enjoy FREE Cycle Parking thanks to Take A Stand®

The 126th Sea Mills Scouts were very happy to recieve their FREE cycle stands thanks to Bristol City Council and Life Cycle UK's Take A Stand® scheme.

The stands were delivered in July and the Scout leaders installed them over the summer - now the girls and boys have secure storage to encourage them to cycle to their meetings.

Measuring our Impact

Gathering data can be time consuming and boring, so often staff don’t set about the task of monitoring progress with much relish.  However, in our increasingly evidenced-based world, each year Life Cycle goes to great efforts to prove that we are having a positive impact on the community.  

Generous Tandem Donation in Memory of Adrian Hill

Life Cycle's 'Two's Company' project has received a very kind donation of a tandem bicycle, in memory of Adrian Hill, who sadly passed away last year.

Adrian used to work for Life Cycle as a mechanic and was a keen cyclist and lover of all things bicycle, and those close to him were keen for one of his beautifully kept bikes to help support our tandem rides for young people and adults who are blind and visually impaired.

A good transport plan for Bristol

Over the last 18 months I have been attending the Green Capital Partnership Sustainable Transport Action Group or STAG for short. One of the key focusses of STAG over the period has been the development of the Good Transport Plan. The idea originally came from the Bristol Food Network who pioneered the good food plan, to bring together disparate voices in the City to agree a shared vision on food issues.

A Hard Act to Follow....

Cycling in Bristol is on the increase, and one thing I’ve become aware of recently is the number of parents cycling to school with their primary aged children.  I’ve been doing the school run since 2004 and in that time have noticed a real rise in the number of children cycling to school – in my area of North Bristol at any rate.  My school route takes me across several catchment areas, so we not only see children on their way to our school, but to three, if not four others.
